Hazel mccallion has company. you may remember the 97-year-old former mayor of mississauga taking to the walls at @hubclimbing earlier this month. well here’s 99-year-old greta plowman giving it a go at @manchester_climbing_centre in january. full report from her grandson below
#repost @tdobsonnet
mum and me took my 99yro grandma climbing for the first time last week.
this is how @hollyperiperi at @womenclimb reported it:
for tim dobson, watching his grandma tie in and start her first ever climb was probably not the calmest moment of his life. especially 3 days after christmas, when the common feeling is often one of sluggish reluctance to climb off the sofa, never mind the top of a route.

not for greta. with her 69-year old daughter judith belaying, and watched carefully by climber-grandson tim, she calmly made her way up her first top-rope route at @manchester_climbing_centre .

greta, who has never climbed before, said afterwards “it was marvelous! really exciting! my fingers ached a bit, but i learnt to push more with my feet and that made all the difference. “it was such a thrilling experience to get the top. i’m very thankful to judith and tim for supporting me and making this wonderful experience happen.” judith added: “i think she has stronger hands than she thinks – she’s often using handrails to pull herself up and pushing down. anyone who can climb the stairs can climb – and greta proved that today.” “she was asking me if she did good for someone her age, i said the average person her age was dead, and so she was definitely slightly above average”. greta’s past adventures include sailing across the channel in an open dinghy, so she’s not exactly a stranger to exciting challenges.

manchester climbing centre owner john dunne @dunne9012 said “i think greta holds the record for the oldest climber in the centre. she proves that it doesn't matter how old you are, what shape of body you have or how fit you feel you are, climbing is for everyone.”
