Typo in there I think. Pretty sure Dave is now 40, not 30.

Always inspiring for the rest of us in our 40s when top climbers of a similar age are climbing as hard as ever.

You probably misread it - it says he first attempted it in 2007 (when he was 30) and failed, but changes to lifestyle and nutrition have "...helped him to outclimb his 30-year-old self."

The sentence talks about how Dave managed to climb harder than his 30-year-old self.
