The Raboutou's have two children; Shawn (11) and Brooke (8) who have both been cranking hard at Hueco Tanks in Texas.
Andy Mann reports on the prAna blog that he had a day taking photographs of the family out on the boulders:
"Highlights of the day included Brooke and Shawn sending/flashing the classic V8 “Mr.Serious.” (Shawn shortly thereafter added the V10 sit start, and Brooke went on the send a V9!)"
Climbing V9 (Font 7C) at the tender age of 8 is remarkable. Is it due to a genetic advantage from having such top performing parents, or does it show that climbing difficulty still has a long way to go?
