Stevie Haston 8c+ at 52

"Rob's just been in the shop singing the praises of his father-in-law the infamous Stevie Haston. It seems that Stevie did his first 8c+ yesterday, a route called "Descent en Enfer" at the Grotte de Sabart in Ariege (Pyrenees, France).

So as Stevie's part sponsored by V12 (he gets free coffee and anything else his other sponsors DMM and La Sportiva can't supply) we thought we should publicise this amazing feat. Not bad for a 52 year old grandad eh? There should be more in-depth accounts appearing on DMM and La Sportiva's websites, keep an eye out for them."

Brilliant! It is good to see him back in the news with such a bang, he seemed to have disappeared off the radar for a while. Good stuff, no more excuses from us about being to old any more then. Stuart

Good stuff, no more excuses from us about being to old any more then. Good Stuff - it is a travesty! I've been looking forward to being old to have a decent excuse and it's been robbed. With the likes of manolo, Rab Carrington, and other luminaries climbing hard into their 50s and beyond. I'm going to have to find something else to explain my inabilities.
