I took the kids to an indoor rock climbing facility in Gresham, Oregon right outside of  Portland for a fun day out. It is in the aquatic center at Mt. Hood Community College and it was a super cheap, fun activity.  Kids 4 and up can participate. They have open climbing times when you can drop in. 

This was N’s second time and he made it up the wall multiple times. This was E’s first time and she did great. A little intimidated at first, but after a few tries, she was really into it!
