80-Year-Old Paul Ross Climbs in Roller Skates and Boxing Gloves

By Climbing Staff ,

At age 15, Paul Ross did his first rock climb on Little Chamonix (5.4) in England's Lake District. It was a free solo. Now 65-years later, at age 80, he's back to give the route another go. This time he's got a rope, but he's also wearing roller skates and boxing gloves.
