Bob Passerini Still Crushing at 51 - For AARP

I was incredibly happy to shoot this story for AARP's instagram campaign. I met Bob Passerini while climbing at Echo Cliffs a few months ago. He was climbing harder routes than anyone I personally know, and doing so at 51-years-old. These images are from a casual Sunday afternoon climbing with his wife, Jane. He sent Pretty in Pink (5.12b) and State of Grace (5.13c) seemingly effortlessly. After 30 years of climbing, he's still pushing his own limits and climbing harder than ever. Absolutely inspiring. I hope I can crush like him at that age.
