93-year-old Everett Kalin becomes the ‘oldest known person to climb’ Yosemite’s Half Dome‼️

Everett Kalin decided to climb Yosemite’s Half Dome on 18 July. According to the National Park Service, the Half Dome Day Hike takes most hikers 10 to 12 hours to complete and now Kalin is believed to be the oldest person on record to climb it.

“When you hit your 90s, you think, ‘What would be some things I’d like to do?’ I guess Half Dome was the thing that most popped into my mind.”

The 93-year-old completed the climb with his 57-year-old son Jon and 19-year-old granddaughter Sidney. The pair carried all of the supplies so the grandfather could hike with just a water bladder on his back.


This is super wholesome! If he can do it at 93, then so can you!
