Rab Carrington redpointed his 1st 8a (29) at the tender age of 60 :)

His climbing partner Al Austin did the same route on the same day at the same age (a few months before their 60th birthdays.)

While we're on the subject of ageing poms, Steve Haston recently ticked his first 8c+ (34) at the spritely young age of 52. Does this make him the hardest climbing grandfather on the planet I wonder?
