This Whipper was submitted by Dave Hoven, this little tyke’s uncle. (Don’t worry, the parents gave their blessing and encouraged Dave to send it in!)

If you think about it, given this kiddo’s height, his digger is probably the equivalent of you taking a fall at the lip of your highball proj ??

We foresee big things in this fearless little guy’s future. Years from now when he’s crushing double-digit boulders and 5.16s, he’ll be able to say that he got his start in the climbing world in a star-making turn on the Weekend Whipper!

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
