Mario Stanley | Coaching Better Humans

Through the vehicle of rock climbing, Mario Stanley coaches kids (and adults) to become better humans. He’s created programs for all ages, but perhaps the most interesting to many youth coaches out there are the teams he’s created as a feeder into the storied programs of Team Texas.

His big personality translates to his mentorship. It’s powerful and you know without a doubt that Mario has your back. I appreciate that from a coach - and from a friend.

Taylor Fragomeni | Routesetting and Coaching from the Female Perspective

Taylor Fragomeni is a routesetter, coach, and all around genuine human. We met in Bozeman, MT at Spire, where she was the head setter and youth team coach. I was impressed by her place in the community as well as her approach to coaching, and we've been in contact since. We sat down at my house while Taylor was traveling from Bozeman to St. George for her new job at Contact Climbing to talk being female in the routesetting industry and lessons that she's taken from routesetting into coaching.

Board Meetings | Stop Blaming the Routesetters

The title says it all. We do it too much. We blame the routesetters for our own failings, our own shortcomings, our own lack of commitment, our own destructive ego. It's not their fault. Here's why.

Eric Jerome featuring Max Zolotukhin | What Makes a Great Boulder?

Eric Jerome loves lists. All kinds of them. Lucky for us, he also happens to be a brutally strong boulderer with a penchant for nerding out about all things bouldering.

I sat down with Eric and special guest Max Zolotukhin (one of the few people with a nerd level to rival Eric’s) and did my best to hold my own in one of the nerdiest conversations this podcast has ever hosted. Turns out, we only got about 1/3rd of the way through what we needed to. Hopefully at some point I’ll get these two to sit down again for more in depth examination of the most subjective objective list ever created.

Board Meetings | Bouldering Tactics Part 3 | Tools

In Part 3 of our series on Bouldering Tactics, Nate and I sit down to discuss the tools needed to be an effective boulderer. Ok, maybe not all of them are needed - but all of them can be helpful.

Board Meetings | Bouldering Tactics Part 2

Part 2 of 3.

In this episode Nate and I sit down to try and parse out a topic that is FAR too big for one episode - bouldering tactics. We intended for this to be a 2-parter, but it ended up being over 3 hours total, so we're making it a 3 part series instead.

Updates + Melissa Utomo on Sends and Suffers

It's been a hectic few weeks (months) over here, and I wanted to give you all an update on what we've been working on. So many exciting things coming! 

I also wanted to play you a short clip of a podcast episode I recently listened to that needs to get into more ears. Episode 11 of Sends and Suffers with Melissa Utomo - even though I knew of the situation - was eye opening for me. I think you'll want to hear it.
