Ep. 114: Dealing with Climbing Injury with Esther Smith and Eva Lopez

00:0000:00

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.

Ep. 109: Board Meetings | Top 5 Redpoint Pitfalls featuring Dru Mack | Part 1

00:0000:00

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.

Ep. 108: Motor Learning with Trevor Ragan from Train Ugly

00:0000:00

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 workshops and coaching, and asked how he might improve upon them based on the research behind motor learning. 

If you're a coach, this is a must listen to episode. In fact, if you're a climber who wants to learn to climb better, it's a must listen.

Ep. 106: Strength, Identity and Cancer with Joslynn Corredor

00:0000:00

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 developing breast cancer was high. This left her with what could have been an agonizing decision that threatened the identity she’d worked so hard to cultivate, but Jos came prepared.

Ep. 105: Big Walls and Authenticity with Sasha DiGiulian

00:0000:00

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 Sasha is at the top, I watch her closely.

In this episode Sasha and I sit down in her house in Boulder, CO to discuss her recent trip to Alberta, Canada. She drove north alone, after a break up and social media firestorm, to climb the Rockies Trilogy first established by Sonnie Trotter. Three 5.14 Big Walls. No small undertaking. She struggled, doubted, pulled it back together and sent, and she found out in a big way how to reconnect to the roots of her climbing.
