The Old Man

First climbed in 1966 by Sir Chris Bonnington, Tom Patey and Rusty Baillie. The climb was televised by the BBC over the period of a whole evening. Ok, modern techniques make it more accessable to other climbers, but this 450 feet of rock are way beyond me.

The old man can be found off the west coast of Hoy which his located in the Orkney Islands off Scotland.
