Meet Richard Sogg – Half Dome lover at 83.

Do you think that since you are turning 40, 50, or 60 that surely this is your last chance to hike Half Dome? Unless you have given up and spend your free time picking out caskets, buckle up and get training for Half Dome.

I’d like you to meet Dick Sogg. He’s only 83. Really. Broken arm or not, he’s a goer.

I met him at the Mountain Room at Yosemite a couple years back and we finally linked up for lunch. We live 4 miles apart. He told me some great stories about his days at Yosemite and the three times he hiked Half Dome. He has attended my webinars and tells me that Half Dome was one of the hardest hikes he has done. He’s sidelined with a broken left arm (from a January adventure) , but wants to do the North Dome hike this summer. Go, Dick, go!

During our Togo’s sub sandwich lunch, I filmed him for a short interview. When I get some time I will edit and post it. I love motivational people.

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Age is but a number.” – A wise old man.
