Letter: Wear helmets when climbing

Published 8:59 am Wednesday, March 15, 2017

I cannot believe I am seeing pictures in the Albert Lea Tribune showing children doing rock climbing with no helmets on. My grandson teaches climbing in New Hampshire. The first thing to teach is to always wear a helmet. Even for picture taking. He does so when he has his picture taken. Parents please make sure your children are safe and that they always wear a helmet. Climbing is fun, but also where accidents can and do happen.
