Introducing the trailer for a new podcast brought to you by Power Company Climbing, Crux Conditioning, and Plug Tone Audio! Is it possible to make research and science both more fun - and frankly - more useful for coaches and climbers? That’s what we needed to answer. Now that we’re a few episodes into recording this podcast, I can honestly answer …
 
On Episode 231 of the Enormocast, I connect to the other side of the world with Indian climber, Gowri Varanashi. Gowri learned to climb in the US but fell in love with climbing in her home country of India. Immediately, she felt the need to bring more women into the small, male-dominated climbing community in … Continue reading "Enormocast 231: Gow…

How do we get better at climbing? That's a question we ask, and are asked, ALL THE TIME. One of the best answers is certainly something along the lines of "Be very intentional about challenging yourself while climbing as many things as you can." A bit simplistic, but it works. Kerry Scott embodies this. From her goal to climb 100 new boulders in a …
 
On Episode 229.5 of the Enormocast, I rebroadcast an interview I did with Luke Mehall over at his podcast The Dirtbag State of Mind Podcast.

I get all mushy about what its meant to me and how … Continue reading "Enormocast 229.5: REBROADCAST of Luke…
 
Juliet Hammer is a straight up crusher, with over 30 double digit boulders under her belt. Still, she isn't immune to the dark side of the internet. The side which so regularly has to push their "expertise" on grades and climbing. Many of these people are too incompetent to understand how incompetent they are - the Dunning-Kruger Effect. And their …
 
Doing the work in a social media world can take it's toll.

In July of 2020 I released an episode with Devin Dabney in which we discussed a podcast idea he’d been mulling over for quite some time. A podcast that would look at social issues within the climbing community from a variety of perspectives. Much of the feedback around that episode was that people wanted to hear more from Devin. He needed to do tha…
 
This summer I had a dinner at my house with a group of folks who I have immense respect for. Like minded climbers who are interested in both exploring their own personal limits and pushing the community to be better. After the dinner, I heard the same feedback from nearly every person - that conversations with Lor were the highlight of the night. L…

The main topic on the table is Jordan’s saga with freeing Golden Gate … Continue reading "Enormocast 227: Jorda…
 
Smith Rock, about 30 minutes outside of Bend, Oregon is a destination that should be on every sport climbers list of places to visit. It’s the birthplace of American sport climbing and home of the first 5.14 in the country, To Bolt or Not To Be. Beside that, our guest on this episode of the What When How to Train podcast series, local Justin Brown,…
 
Stefano Ghisolfi recently made the 2nd ascent of Bibliographie, a proposed 15d (9c) first done by Alex Megos in Ceuse, France. This would have made Stefano only the 3rd person to climb the grade - behind the two climbers widely considered as the best in the world. But Stefano chose to say that the route isn’t 15d after all, but 15c (9b+). Why? In t…
 
In this Board Meeting, Nate and I sit down to discuss the many pieces of advice that, when actually looked at, make no real sense, but simultaneously make all of the sense in the world.

Climbing has never been a purely physical pursuit. Even if that is the initial draw, climbing has a way of pulling your mental and emotional states in, utilizing and amplifying them, and ultimately, if you arrive with awareness, helping you understand those states better. All while we get to try as absolutely hard as we want to. Beautiful. In this …
