Topic - Bouldering/Sport Climbing to a higher level

BellX1 - on 25 Mar 2013
Hi all. Just a quick question for those in the know. I came to climbing quite late (age 32) and bouldering even later (35). Is it possible for someone like me to progress to the higher grades given my late start and having not had the chance to strengthen and train tendons/pulleys during my teens/twenties. I realise someone like Stevie Haston can on-sight F8a at 52 but he's been climbing since childhood and would have had many years' worth of 'muscle memory' plus he's, em, Stevie Haston. But seriously though, if I were fortunate enough to remain injury free and train sensibly, what's a realistic target for someone such as myself? Thanks..
