I am a badass climber in my 80s that set a goal of 8 major ice and rock routes in my 80th year in different mountain ranges, raising money for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease research in the process.I’m happy to say, I completed those 8 climbs! Thank you for helping me reach my goal of 8 climbs by my 80th Birthday! I’m not done yet though!

The adventure continues! I will keep climbing throughout my 80s!
