Children escaped the heat and honed their climbing skills at the Shillito Park pool's new climbing wall Monday. The 13.5 feet high wall has notches for handholds and slopes over the pool to jump in. Meteorologist Chris Bailey said recently that the weather pattern may make this week the hottest of the entire summer. Highs Monday will be near 90 degrees, with high humidity and the threat of a storm or two, he said. Highs on any given day this week could hit the low 90s.
