Ep. 145: Intentional Climbing Community with The BlackHeathens

"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 and Andrea Hah, Lee and Sam Cujes, Julian Saunders, David Brailey, and Vince Day. While we're missing a few key Blackheathens, we got a pretty good representation. 

Stick around to the very end!

Ep. 144: Board Meetings | Top 5 Reasons Hangboarding is Important

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 Nate and I sit down to discuss the antithesis to the previous episode. Hangboarding is important.

Ep. 143: Board Meetings | Top 5 Reasons Hangboarding is Overrated

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.

Ep. 142: Moonboard Benchmarking with Ravioli Biceps

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 identifying as a "Moonboarder". We also find out about the genesis of the name Ravioli Biceps. 

Legend.

Ep. 141: Is It Really A Plateau? with Lee Cujes

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 questions. 

Besides being always stoked for climbing and training, Lee also has an incredible outlook on progression and doing it his way. An outlook that a lot of us could take a piece away from to improve our own. 

To learn more about Lee and his history, be on the lookout for an Enormocast episode coming soon and listen to this excellent episode from Aussie podcast Baffle Days.
