Board Meetings | Is it a Weakness or is it Just Hard?

Hard climbing is, well, hard. In this episode, Nate and I discuss one of the unrealistic expectations that training can bring about - that everything should just feel easy.

Board Meetings | Climbing Terms We Don’t Like

Hopefully, for most of us, 2020 was a year that showed us we need to be more cognizant of the language we use and the effects that it has. That shouldn't end with 2021. In this episode, Nate and I discuss the most popular terms in climbing that we aren't fans of. 

I'm a firm believer in the power of words. Intention and context are important, but equally important is how something is generally received. If I can help or allow people to try harder, feel more comfortable, and feel less excluded just by changing the use of a word - particularly a word that could easily be replaced like most terms in this sport - then I can't imagine why I wouldn't do it.

Home Wall Listener Questions | Part 3

I asked, and we got a LOT of questions about home walls, spray walls, and the like, so we've split it into 6 parts - or more actually, since a few of the questions will warrant their own entire episode. 

In this episode, with Zach Alexander of 42 North Bouldering, we discuss marking and keeping track of problems, the value of old resin grips, volumes on a home wall, symmetric walls, and setting limit boulders.

NOTE: We mention the Eat Spray Love app, but are aware that it's currently having some issues on iPhone. There are lots of apps out there now - and maybe we'll develop one of our own.
