More information:
59, but still fit and strong for 59. I hike more slowly than I did at 40, but I'm still going.

Other interests include sea kayaking - I've explored the west coast of Vancouver Island by sea kayak and love it there. Ocean paddling has some parallels to climbing that are interesting.

I'm also a guitar player and enjoy playing blues-based rock... that's a different kind of "rock" but it does keep my fingers flexible.
