That's very impressive considering Gaz Parry is knocking on 40 and still improving.
I reckon/hope you can keep improving in your mid or even late 40s.
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.
