Going through the motions at the gym this morning, I came across this footage of Swiss climber, Marcel Remy, still going strong at 94...

Thanks. That was far more interesting than all these movies of sub-30-somethings climbing 8*s or whatever. These days that's not really news. We need more of this instead.

Brilliant. Note to self. Stop using age as an excuse (70 next and still trying)

Awesome!
Inspirational as hell, I watch, I see with my own eyes and yet I still get some sort of mental segfault when I try to connect being 94 with being able to climb an alpine route like that.

Also, I loved the soundtrack, it fitted very well with the pace of the film.

Excellent, thanks for posting.
His philosophy to keep on climbing regardless of age and not to let the old man in, is fantastic.
