Ice climbing can absolutely be done by kids! As long as its done in a safe setting with people that know what they are doing. My daughter is only one, but my husband and I are already figuring out what gear we need to take her in a few years. San Juan Mountain guides starts kids at 8 in their kids climbing college. I have seen 5 year olds ice climb and do a great job. Sure, you can't be a couch potato and just go out there and do it, but it is fun and great for kids of all ages.

Oops forgot about this! At Darlington Kevin Harvick wins after passing Dale Jr. With 2tg on a GWC. Johnson comes home in 3rd. Jeff Gordon keeps his points lead. Kenseth and Edwards are stalking him in the points. [-News-] Gene Haas has announced that he is planning on making a F1 team. None of his Stewart-haas drivers will be driving in it though. Subway recently is looking for sponsor in F1. This could become a deal. Lack of funding for the team of Swan Racing (Parker Kligerman and Cole Whitt) May cause it to shutdown. Team spokesman says that lack of funds has been an issue of lately but they plan to keep on going.
