57 year old climber dude. Married with two grown daughters. Happy to say I am grandpa three times. Climbing has been very good to me since the age 13 when I got into it in 1975. I have climbed consistently all those years every year. The 40's have not been good to me though. Lots of issues turning 40 but still climb whenever I can.... New all metal right hip joint (BHR) Feb-2008. New all metal left hip joint (BHR) Mar-2015. I still go.
