I am an 80 year old badass climber that set a goal of 8 major ice and rock routes in different mountain ranges, raising $100,000 for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease research.

I’m happy to say, the 8 major ice/rock climbs are complete! Thank you for helping me reach my goal of 8 climbs by my 80th Birthday! It’s not over yet! The adventure continues! I will keep climbing throughout my 80th year! The trips are self-funded with 100% of the funds raised going to the research organizations.
