August 1, 2016
Jon+Cardwell?format=1000w

In this episode I sit down with professional climber, routesetter, and youth coach, Jon Cardwell, and talk about the challenges inherent to long distance projecting.  Jon recently completed his long term project, Biographie (5.15a), in Ceuse, over 5,000 miles from his home.  And you thought 150 miles was too far...

We talk about the mental and emotional toll, as well as how he structured his physical training with such a big, overseas objective in mind.  We go deep into the emotions of dealing with failure, and how it affects your mindset when you can't try your project every day.
