Ep. 98: Diversity in Climbing with Brown Girls Climb Leaders Bethany Lebewitz, Monserrat Alvarez, and Sasha McGhee

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 visibility of diversity in climbing by establishing a community of climbers of color, encouraging leadership opportunities for identified women climbers of color, and by creating inclusive opportunities to climb and explore for under represented communities.

We sat down to discuss diversity in climbing. It's a complex topic, and while you won't find answers here, per se, thoughts may be sparked that lead you toward your own answers.

Sending a route 2nd try is NOT THE SAME as the 2nd Try Send. The difference isn't even subtle. It's a whole different animal. 

In this episode Nate and I discuss the What, Why, How, and When of the extremely valuable skill of the 2nd Try Send. 

Learn it. You'll be glad you did.
