...even 5.10 (the brain)! ...

Brain is 5.8, the nose thing to the left of it I think is 5.9+

My 6 yr old keeps asking me to take him climbing.  Where should I go?  I have climbing experience but just having difficulty linking together in my brain easy beginner climbs (for adults) and fitting these easy climbs into a less than 4 foot tall 6 year old body.  Obviously top rope ideas are great but if I need to climb a  pitch and set a top rope I can.  I am thinking big crack, bolders, slabs.  Open to all suggestions.  Will drive to Conway region if needed but I am in Central ME and would like to stay closer.  Camden OK, Bethal/grafton OK, Clifton might as well go to conway in terms of time driving.  Well thanks for the suggestions.

There is a good beginner slab at South Bubble in Acadia, but pretty far from central ME.  Will probably be my 5 yr old's first outdoor climb.

Thanks for all the input, made it out again this weekend and went over to lost horizon at sundown, did dads run free and then one 100 ft down to its right.  Went well.  Stopped in at IME and Rick suggested Jockey Cap in Fryburg, swung by there on the way out.  A bit steeper, or should I say vertical but big holds and short approach, <5 min.
