Science and Data are increasingly popular in training for climbing, and for good reason. Leading that charge is Dr. Tyler Nelson of Camp 4 Human Performance. He's built a strong following on Instagram, and is giving solid information to coaches and climbers all over the world, but as with any post on social media, much of the context is lost. C ...…
 
A home wall can be an extremely valuable tool to have at your disposal. Deciding to have one is easy, but that one decision will open up a world of damned near impossible to make decisions. Set board or spray wall? If a board, which one? If a spray wall, what angles, what density, WHICH GRIPS?? So. Many. Decisions. In this episode Nate and I si ...…
 
"A room full of superheroes" is how this conversation was described by an Australian climber at Mt. Arapiles. He's not wrong. In this episode I sit down in Blackheath at the home of Tom O'Halloran and Amanda Watts with a who's who of Aussie climbing to discuss the idea of Intentional Community. Besides Tom and Amanda, we talk with Lee Cossey an ...…
 
Hangboarding is overrated, but it's also important. Please, for the sake of all that is good in humanity, listen to Episode 143 before you listen to this one. Every time someone listens to this episode out of order, the climbing gods will remove the obvious start to another undiscovered classic boulder. Don't let this happen! In this episode Na ...…
 
Yes, you read that correctly. OVERRATED. In this episode Nate and I sit down to discuss the top 5 reasons why one of the most popular forms of training for climbing is simply being blown out of proportion. Sue me. You can find us at www.powercompanyclimbing.com You can support the podcast at www.patreon.com/powercompanypodcast We don't tweet. W ...…
 
I'm fairly sure I've gotten more DMs asking when this episode is coming than any other. And it's a good one. Today's guest is Moonboard legend Ravioli Biceps - the first (and currently only?) person to send all of the Benchmarks on the 2016 Moonboard set. We discuss his history with the Moonboard as well as his struggle with the transition to i ...…
 
Sometimes you're improving, but the grades don't reflect that. Does that mean you're on a forever plateau? In this episode I sit down in the Red River Gorge with Aussie legend Lee Cujes - really just to learn more about him. We didn't have a specific direction we wanted to go when we sat down. I just knew I should turn the mic on and ask him qu ...…
 
In this Board Meeting, Nate is temporarily replaced by our Strength and Conditioning Coach Paul Corsaro. Paul is a kettlebell expert (among other things), and has converted me. We discuss our top 5 reasons for continuing to use kettlebells in our own training as well as in programming for our athletes. You can find our Kettlebells for Climbers ...…
 
If Australian Lee Cossey lived in North America, he’d be a name mentioned alongside Tommy Caldwell and Sonnie Trotter as one of the best all around climbers on the planet. That’s because he IS one of the best all around climbers on the planet. For some reason, despite the internet making information easy to share, we in the US are largely blind ...…
 
Honorary co-host Dru Mack is back in the building, and this time we're talking about what might be Dru's bread and butter - endurance climbing. We both learned to climb in the Red River Gorge, an area famous for it's steep, pumpy climbing, so we both think we're experts on the subject, and we both believe that many of today's coaches are gettin ...…
 
In this episode Nate and I sit down to discuss an important topic - the top 5 reasons why people who train and train and train still can't improve their climbing outdoors. It can be a struggle - there isn't a 1:1 return on training investment, particularly if you don't have a few key things in place. Do you fall into one of these categories? If ...…
 
As the National Coach for Sport Climbing Australia, Will Hammersla has a tough job. The Olympics are now in play, and in a country as spread out as Australia, where it can be 10 hours between major cities, cultivating a "team" is damn near impossible. But he's working at it on a bedrock of solid principles and philosophies, and the work seems t ...…
 
The first of the Oz Tapes! In this episode I sit down with Anna Davey, a professional climber from Perth, Western Australia. Anna has a healthy following on social media, and as a result, gets her fair share of haters. But I know that's only a tiny part of the story - one that starts with a big dream and a lot of hard work. Anna puts in that wo ...…
 
Nate and I aren't always in the same place, but we still want to talk about things. So this is going to be a new, ongoing format - short board meetings done remotely. We plan to discuss current events, hot topics, training ideas - whatever. Could be damn near anything. In this episode we discuss an often argued about aspect of training - Should ...…
 
Created by the coaches of Power Company Climbing, "EMPOWERED: A Bouldering Intensive" is a 3 day bouldering seminar aimed to provide the self-coached climber with the tools and tactics needed to construct effective training plans, analyze their own movement, track measurable progress, and engage a productive mental approach when bouldering. Whe ...…
 
Every week I get emails asking about how to start a small business in the climbing space. While I do my best to answer these questions, I also have many of my own. Dave and Yusuf, along with Dave's brother Dan, are some of the people I turn to when I have those questions - or just for short chats that I always walk away from with several import ...…
 
Epic. If you haven't listened to Part 1 yet, go do it NOW. It should already be right there in your pocket super computer. In this episode I sit down at a campfire in the Red River Gorge with Mo, who recently completed her trip to Lotus Flower Tower and the World Championships. Find out how it all went. You can find Mo at www.moinmountains.com ...…
 
Mo Beck is a professional climber, 2019 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, multiple time World Champion, stand up comedian (not really but she should be) and all around BADASS. In this episode, Part 1 of 2, we sit down in a busy Outdoor Retailer hallway to discuss a little of her background, her work with the US Adaptive Athletes, and ...…
 
Mina Leslie-Wujastyk is one of the most open pros out there, and this conversation is no different. Between competition and notching ascents of some of the planets most inspiring lines of up to 14b and V13, she's waged her fair share of battles. In this episode we sit down and discuss roadtrip projects, the difference between competition pressu ...…
 
In this episode I sit down for an emotional conversation with my good friends Dru Mack and Lee Smith about the interesting topic of mentorship. How it starts, what it means, and what happens when the student surpasses the teacher. Some say that mentorship is dying. I'm not sure that's true, though mentors are definitely outnumbered by new climb ...…
 
Sam Elias really needs no introduction. He's one of America's top sport climbers, so it's likely you've heard of him. While some climbers cultivate an image that is extremely shallow and limited, it's not so with Sam. He wears his heart on his sleeve - as well as his ruminations with that fact. It's been fascinating to watch Sam openly mature i ...…
 
I'm back in the States and back on the podcast grind. I apologize for the absence. Sort of, but not really. I was rock climbing, and that's gonna win over podcast every time. ANYWAY... Today's guest is Emily Moore, the Events Manager for the Climbing Wall Association. Last spring I attended the CWA Summit and was blown away by the event. It's w ...…
 
We went a little overboard on our Oz Tour 2019 Tee Shirts, so we decided to give a few away if you can answer a few questions. I scoured the depths of Australian Climbing Trivia to find these 11 questions - some gimmes and some damned hard. Here's how it works: 1. Screenshot this podcast (any episode). 2. Share the screenshot to Instagram. Tag ...…
 
Yoga and meditation have been practiced for thousands of years, so there's far more to it than the core strength, flexibility, and mental focus promoted by popular culture. Being an absolute neophyte in both worlds, I wanted to learn from someone who is steeped in the traditions - but willing to explore outside the constraints of that tradition ...…
 
It's become accepted that climbers should be lifting weights if we want to maximize our athletic potential. But why exactly? We have lots of reasons, but these are our top 5. This Board Meeting is a little different. Since our board has grown, so should our Board Meetings. In this episode, rather than Nate, I'm talking to our Strength and Condi ...…
 
In this episode Nate and I sit down to answer a few questions submitted through our Instagram Story. Many of the questions were related, so we've tried to piece together a narrative of sorts that answers these questions. More coming! You can find us at www.powercompanyclimbing.com You can support the podcast at www.patreon.com/powercompanyclimb ...…
 
While I like to think that all of our discussions here are important, some are just plain bigger picture than others. This one falls into the bigger picture category. Recorded live at the 2018 CWA Summit, the Women in Climbing discussion brought up many great points and offered several learning opportunities for everyone present. Special thanks ...…
 
For most of you reading this, the truth is that the pros are better than you. Why? Are they special in some way? Some of them don't even "train"! How the hell did they get so good? Nate and I sit down after recording several other episodes and drinking several beers, to discuss the top 5 reasons why the pros are so good. Some reasons you can us ...…
 
Dark Horse, Climber's Climber, Undercover Crusher - whatever you want to call it - today's guest Brian Antheunisse may be it. If you don't closely follow the comp scene or deviate from the typical climbing news cycle, that is. But if you pay attention, you know and respect the name. I've been aware of Brian for quite some time, and got the chan ...…
 
Today's guest needs absolutely no introduction, but I'm honored to introduce her anyway. She is famed Spanish researcher, coach and climber Eva Lopez. We sat down in Salt Lake City to discuss the reactions to her research about finger strength, and to find out once and for all, What is the best hangboard protocol? You can find Eva and her Finge ...…
 
Ayo Sopeju is a competitive climber, head setter at The Minneapolis Bouldering Project, and an artist who takes the utmost care with his work. This care carries over to all that he does - setting, conversation, everything. I wanted to know where the intersection of his detailed art and his setting happens, and how the calmness and flow he exude ...…
 
This past October in Minneapolis I had the opportunity to sit down and chat with one of the most exciting comp climbers to watch - recent Pan American Combined Champion Kyra Condie. We talk about coming up in a very testosterone driven climbing culture - one that has shaped much of how Kyra climbs. We discuss her spinal fusion surgery and how t ...…
 
We all create some sort of mythology around certain routes or grades - a mythology that often says "you don't belong on this route!" Todays guest, Brittany Goris, is no exception to that rule - except that she somehow pushes right through that mythology and sends those routes. I wanted to know how. I first learned of Brittany after she redpoint ...…
 
In this episode I sit down with two high powered women, Eva Lopez and Esther Smith, to discuss how we deal with climbing injury. Not necessarily the details of how to rehab, but best practices for prevention, psychologically coping with, and getting back to climbing after these injuries. You can find Esther Smith at http://www.grassrootsphysica ...…
 
The final part of our 5 part series with Dru Mack, discussing the Top 5 Redpoint Pitfalls that we see climbers getting trapped in. To Recap: 5. Bad timing - getting into redpoint attempts too early or too late. 4. Getting stuck in bad beta. 3. Making the wrong links or letting links expire. 2. Spending too much time on one route or projecting i ...…

For today's Board Meeting, Nate and I sat down with Red River legend Dru Mack to discuss the top 5 most common pitfalls of redpointing. It's a complex process - one that we've all made our share of mistakes in. This conversation ended up being around 2.5 hours long, so I've decided to split it into 5 bite sized pieces over the next week. You ca ...…
 
In this episode I sit down with Episode 64 alum Trevor Ragan. If you haven't listened to Ep 64 yet... go do that now. We'll wait. Trevor and I caught up after a TED X Talk he gave in Lander, to discuss the principles and theories behind motor learning. I quite selfishly gave him scenarios and examples using the drills we've created for our work ...…
 
Technically, this is Part 2 and 3. If you haven't listened to Part 1, Episode 88, you should do that. In this episode I sit down with Jared at the CWA to discuss the 2nd and 3rd steps - strength and movement - in his Rock Rehab Pyramid - a system of preventing and rehabbing climbing injuries. You can find the book, Climb Injury Free, on Dr. Vag ...…
 
Joslynn Corredor is the definition of strength and courage. Not only is she a hard working strength trainer, but she’s made some of the toughest choices there are to make in the face of adversity. With an identity wrapped in being a strong bodied, athletic woman, Jos was diagnosed with the gene mutation BRCA1, meaning that the likelihood of dev ...…
 
Fame and authenticity don’t always go hand in hand. We’d love to believe that in climbing they always do, but that just isn’t the case. As someone who makes their living in a very public way within the climbing industry, I’m hyper aware of my own authenticity, and I watch other public figures in our tiny sphere to see how they navigate. Because ...…
 
In this episode Nate and I break from the Top 5 format to have a simple discussion about how climbers are products of our environment. You can find us at www.powercompanyclimbing.com You can support the podcast at www.patreon.com/powercompanypodcast We don't tweet. We scream like eagles.By Kris Hampton and Nate Drolet | Power Company Climbing.
 
My good friend and Episode 16 guest Dru Mack stopped by during the International Climbers Festival in Lander to chat, and of course the conversation turned to climbing. He told me about a list that Jonathan Siegrist had created for him - a list that is a surefire way to make sure that Dru's development as a climber isn't lacking. I needed to kn ...…
 
Today's episode is a question and answer session from our Performance Climbing Coach Seminar, recorded live in Columbia, MD. On our final day the participants asked questions of our presenters, including Steve Bechtel and Charlie Manganiello from Climb Strong, Neely Quinn from TrainingBeta, Tyler Nelson from Camp 4 Human Performance, and Kelly ...…
 
Don't get us wrong... we LOVE gyms. And if your only goal is to be as good as you can in your gym, then you can skip this episode. However, if you want to be prepared for the outdoors, then this episode will be important for you. Gyms are businesses and have to operate as such. They make prudent decisions that are beneficial for them as busines ...…
 
We're flipping the script for our 100th (!!!) episode. Nate takes over the host mic, and I do my best to let him lead the conversation. After being at the helm so many conversations, it's hard for me to relinquish that role. In this episode we talk about my years of Weekend Warrioring, and how to climb hard while also being dedicated to a caree ...…
 
I've heard Tonde Katiyo described as a ninja, a samurai, Buddha and Yoda, among other ethereal, higher level beings. Though Tonde is definitely a human, those descriptions aren't necessarily wrong. In conversation it's quickly evident that Tonde has put quite a bit of thought and care into his craft. He approaches it with both a pragmatism and ...…
 
These are three of the most dynamic women I've ever had the pleasure of having a conversation with. They've put their souls into their work. I went in prepared (and nervous) for a very serious discussion, but they so easily toggled between joking and focused that I was put completely at ease. Brown Girls Climb aims to promote and increase visib ...…
