Bob Timmer on YouTube

In 2000 he was given three years to live. Two tumors later he is still climbing. Meet Bob Timmer, cancer survivor and ice climber master from Jeffersonville, NY. He tells his story of survival and determination. Timmer climbs some classic ice climbs (Jeff Slide) at his backyard playground of Smuggler’s Notch, VT. Having a fear of heights and being attacked by cancer didn’t stop this guy from doing what he loved most. Video courtesy of lowealpine.com
