I hesitate to imply that Nick Dixon is old, but I learnt today he's climbed E8 (or E9) every year since 1986 - that's 31 years.

I bought myself my first set of touring skis for my 61st birthday, in anticipation of my body not being able to handle trying hard at sport climbing for much longer
'Crackaholic' 8a Trad. (E8?) Bohuslan. Released but still in a state of shock processing the weeks of mental (and physical) battering this climb has been dealing out. A total war of attrition shared with so many patient belayers. Success always so close yet so far, then an knee injury a couple weeks ago screamed 'Game Over' and almost exhausted the psych for this year. Glad I kept trying. Much thanks and gratitude to all my partners during the process. Jesper, Leo, Said Belhaj, Johan, Stefan ('The Wolfman'), and especially today Freja Shannon for the no stress encouragement and perfect catches.
