Cedar Pidgeon, 11, daughter of the Canadian powerhouse boulderer Thomasina Pidgeon, climbed her first V11,The Kind Traverse, and just a few days later her mother Thomasina sent!
Cedar, having grown up climbing, is comfortable on rock as well on climbing road trips. The mother-daughter duo spent just about a month-and-a-half on the road climbing all over, from Maple Canyon, Utah, to Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, and exploring “the many local and alpine areas from Guanella Pass to the Poudre Canyon,” according to an email from Thomasina.
Cedar, already a strong boulderer like her mother, said in Thomasina’s email, “I really enjoyed the Kind Traverse. I thought that it was very cool and that it was a super fun, enjoyable and interesting climb. At the beginning of the climb there was a long reach that I struggled on but I made it through and got to the end. When I got to the top I was just really happy and excited.”
Congratulations to Cedar on an impressive send and we look forward to hearing more about Cedar and Thomasina’s adventures in the future!
