Old man Haston climbs 9a

As most of you probably know by now (been busy today), Stevie Haston, aged 87, has climbed his first 9a, Descente Lolitta at Grotte de Sabart in the French Pyrenées. As Haston brought his walker along for the ride, I'm not entirely sure whether this ascent is to be considered free or aid. Effort though old man!

I hope Stevie never reads this, or he'll come all the way to Sweden to kick my ass. If he does.. Well, grandad... bring it on! You'll be sorry you lost all that weight!
