VIDEO: Gamma Group - Climbing into your 80's

Over the hill? The wrong side of 40? Too many birthdays? Age is often used as an excuse to slow down and pursue less adventurous activities. However, this group of climbers depicted in a video by Kamil Jutkiewicz are refusing to be defined by their age: the oldest member is 84 years-old, having climbed for over 60 years.

The 'Gamma Group' climb together regularly and show no sign of giving up the sport they love.
