What does the father say?

Hi everyone,

I do not understand what the father says at line 49 (0.37s). Could a native speaker please help me?

Thank you very much for your time.

I think he says "Want to climb up an' all?" You should wait for a British person to confirm this.

That site's technology is fantastic!

Re: What does the father say?

Welcome Ukn9
I agree with GS. That's what I hear too.
Note that I've moved your thread to our Pronunciation and Phonetics section.

We don't use and all that way in American English and it's a little faint, so I wasn't confident I'd heard it right.

That is what I hear. It isn't something that I would say as a southern English native BrE speaker but the speaker is Scots, or possibly Ulster Scots. In this case "all" is a shorthand meaning whatever the child wanted to do after climbing.
