OT: Proud father alert

While you mugs were gawking at the esteemed visitors of IKN were concentrating their undoubted intelligence on the market, your humble scribe took his two daughters indoor rock climbing, their first ever go at the game. Here's the nine year old, who got to five metres up and seriously impressed the instructor for her age.


And here's the eleven year old, who (after half an hour of basic training and work on the practice walls) managed to climb to the very top of the 12 metre wall on her first ever attempt at the sport and ring the bell at the top.


A good dozen people had gathered round by this point and cheered and applauded when she did, the prof said she's a natural. I still have a stupid grin on my face. End of proud father alert, we now return you to your normal programming.
