After my recent hike over Mt Mansfield, my friend & I got back to the Nebraska Notch parking lot from where we started. I met a fellow with his son who were out for an easy overnight. We got to talking & he whined about how old he was. It turned out that I am 4 years older than he was. 
After I told him he then said it was more a matter of what shape you are in. 
Last summer while climbing Mt Ampersand in the Adirondacks I passed a group of about 12 males who were in their late teens/early twenties. They were surprised to be passed by an older gray haired man.
Too bad. I actually met them again still coming up while I was going down.
