So, does anyone have an update on the Doctor and Joel's attempt on Golden Gate.

Joel was a beast at Indian Creek!

I think Platinum may be a contender for the honor.

Jlp had it right, Hudon is looking to blow shipoopi out of the water by almost 20 years . How old is rob miller?

I might be 2nd oldest in 2015 at age 43. I lead the slabs, monster, teflon, picture book and scotty burke, among others. I'd like to go back.

If West Face counts I did it at 48 years old, though my bad ass partner led most of the hard stuff. Thirteen hours car to car felt fast for this old man.

it is possible that some uber honed 75 year old slovakian carp

cruised into the valley and fired off free rider and...

I know

I know its a stretch....

but didn't tell anyone or spew about it on the web

and even a bigger stretch...

none of the ST local knew about it.

Nope. Sorry. That's not a thing...

Mark Hudon was headed for Freerider this spring--age 63 and crushing like a maniac. With this rough weather, does anyone know if he made it?
