More information:
I've been climbing for awhile now, and I supposed I've climbed a lot of stuff. I think I've reached the point where I'm considered one of the "old" guys, in that everyone I see at the gym or crag seems to be getting younger than me. I like to look at pretty pictures and discuss training, which is necessary to climb hard at my age.
