Kyle M Case & Lil Barron

Sixty-eight year old rock climber, Dierdre Wolownick is simply amazing. Deirdre was born in New York City. She was a school teacher for 44 years, making a difference in the lives of countless students.  After she retired, her son Alex (That’s Alex Honnold of the film Free Solo fame.), introduced her to mountain climbing. She began training at age 57, but it wasn’t long before she had conquered many of the peaks of the Yosemite range including Snake Dike, Cathedral, and Yenaya. She is best known for being the oldest woman to climb El Capitan at age 66. WOW. And if rock climbing in your last sixties isn’t enough for you, Dierdre is rightfully so on our list of The Fittest 50 Over 50.

You can purchase Dierdre's book, The Sharp End of Life: A Mother's Story, on Amazon Smile and support the Huntsman World Senior Games at the same time.

Kyle and Lil also take a moment to talk about some signs of heart disease that we all ought to be aware of. Check this one out. It's great.
