    I just joined this forum and this thread caught my attention. Though I haven't yet read all the threads.
    I've been climbing my whole life. I'm 60 years old now. Last few years I've been working some big projects in No. Calif. I'm normally the oldest guy out there and specialize in hazardous removals. I'm hoping to get at least 5 more years in since it's only been recently I've been making some serious money.
    Don't let age catch up to you. The secret I beleave is don't stop. It helps to if you love what you do.

    Welcome to the TreeHouse, brother! Gotta first name? Mine is Butch... make yourself at home!

    Be aware that the accident stats on older climbers don't look good.

    Trust me, at 65 no matter what you are doing you are more likely to die than a younger person.
