… that today is Oldest El Capitan Climber Day? On this day in 1999, 81-year-old Gerry Bloch became the oldest climber to scale El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. It’s not the first time Bloch had set a record. In 1986, when he was 68, he set the record then for oldest climber. He broke his own record!
