Video: 51-year-old Bill Ramsey redpoints 5.14b

Earlier this year, Bill Ramsey redpointed Reverse Polarity (5.14b) at Mt. Potosi near Las Vegas, NV.  A week later, he celebrated his 52nd birthday.  It’s inspiring to see someone cranking hard past 50, and it’s encouraging to think that even though I’m 37 with 20 years of climbing behind me, my best years may still lie ahead!

Note: this video contains footage of climbers using the kind of words climbers often use when climbing.  Some of these words might be offensive to some.
