/ VIDEO - Graham Desroy - Jerry's Roof (V9) Aged 50
Graham first climbed the problem whilst still hung-over from his 50th birthday, which is an impressive feat, but what gave Graham the most satisfaction was the fact that his son Liam (a super-boulderer), on this occasion couldn't match his efforts! There is nothing like a little father / son rivalry...

1. Well done Streaky on completing the problem
2. No wonder they gave the video clip to UKC ... its rubbish! it doesnt show anything of the problem just some washed out sillouette that could be anywhere - I presume they kept the good footage for the dvd.
"This clip was going to appear in the upcoming film 'Upside Down Wales', but the film team over in Wales kindly gave it to UKClimbing.com instead. More info on Upside Down Wales will be released on UKC soon - watch this space."
I thought is was great and funny.
Good to see Mr. Steelfingers himself still cranking hard.
Streaky only 50???
now I feel really old.
Go Streaky ! Legend
> Streaky only 50???
I can remember him struggling to second Doubting Thomas at least thirty years ago!
How come he claims to climb harder than that at such an advanced age?

He's improved with time, but hasn't yet reached an age where is body is in decline?
