Kieran’s First Ascent of Mt Daimonji

Yesterday, my wife and I took my son up Mt Daimonji for the first time. He seemed to enjoy riding in the backpack. My friend Charlie came along. My wife had already climbed Daimonji that morning (she climbs every morning). It was a nice day.

Here I am with Kieran heading up Shishigatani Valley on the way to the Dai:

Here I am sweaty and tired with Kieran on top of the Dai:
