Check out Jackson Falls in Southern Illinois. Really great bouldering and TR options everywhere.
Oh man, he is messing that up. However, he is missing his left leg so that way would probably be harder for him. SCIN, just before spraying some beta for a climber doing a route the WRONG way.

Sorry, poor phrasing on my part, but yes, I've been planning a trip to Chattanooga soon and know that there are tons of guides for those areas (and you could basically watch every climb at those areas from multiple angles just by cruising youtube for a while). What I mean is that Dixon Springs has essentially no beta available (john gill used to climb there and wrote an article about it for climbing magazine way back when, but even he couldn't find an archived copy), but it might be worth looking into if you're out that way with younger kids and looking for no approach, good landings, with some other activities available too.
Ohh! I get what you are saying now!! Haha, my bad... I misread your post when I was reading through this thread.

Carry on, crisis averted!
