That's very impressive considering Gaz Parry is knocking on 40 and still improving.

Well done.

Rich.

I reckon/hope you can keep improving in your mid or even late 40s.

Great effort.

It's often cited as an example but Rab Carrington climbed his first 8a when he was 60(+).

Don't forget that Gaz has been climbing at an elite level for nigh on a couple of decades so he has the training behind him to keep making these improvements.

Some may say he has been underperforming until now ;0)

Well done Gaz.
