Old lions roar again

Timy Fairfield, 8c boulder at 45 years old

08 January 2016

At Priest Draw, North Arizona, Timy Fairfield opened Throwback, a new line graded 8c for him; very good for an 45 years old atlete! Timy has a great carrer behind him. I not younger climbers, remember him like one of the stronger climber in ‘90s. He was a member of US National and very active on rock. In total, he visited more that 30 countries and for 5 year lived in France working like trainer.

About his boulder, he says: ”This brilliant test-piece is steep, elegantly choreographed, gymnastically specific, savagely powerful, explosive, absolutely hard and 100% natural - the way I like it!"
