Markham Tuck submitted this gem to Rock and Ice.

Markham walks up to a problem and prepares to give it a go. Even 4-year-old Camp, watching, sees the need for a spot. “Are you gonna spotted on him?” Camp asks, adorably….

…To which the adult whose lap he is sitting in responds, “Yeah. Watch him. Watch him go,” and then remains sitting on the ground. ?

Markham takes quite the digger and luckily is none the worse for the wear… but a spot clearly would’ve been a good idea.

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
