Bill Weber climbs the Devils Tower at 91 years old
He beats the previous record and also realizes a little dream09 October 2018
Curious record by the Florida resident pensioner Bill Weber that at the venerable age of 91 still had the strength and the spirit of climbing the famous Devils Tower in Wyoming.
There is no mention of any extreme degree of course but poses a serious question whether it is better to be a top climber that then disappears completely and no longer touches rock when no longer held or a "normal" person who carries on this love for life. Philosophy aside, Bill is a veteran of climbing and has always practiced. His idea was to climb his birthday day with his sons, which he did not do since 1988, when they frequented the Teton. Weber realization beats the previous record held by another 87-year-old climber.
