Climbing And Getting Older
You do not have to stop climbing just because you are getting older!
Starting Out Poor
Willie Gorman (72) is still climbing. He started at the age of 15, when he and some friends went into the local hills and saw other people climbing. They went home and tied washing lines together for ropes and he hasn’t stopped since. He probably doesn’t use washing lines these days though!
He retired at the age of 64 and now spends 4 days a week climbing.
