Episode 48: Hazel Findlay – Being blonde, bold, and resolute!

P1010650(1)On Episode 48 of the Enormocast, we arrive at the two year anniversary of the Enormocast! Whoot! I know. Right?

More importantly, British hotshot Hazel Findlay sits down in the Mobile Studio amidst an unfortunate desert blizzard to fill us in on her origins in the British climbing scene, her life as a sponsored monkey, and girl stuff. She also inadvertently coins the phrase “loads of men”. Try not to be lulled into a dreamlike state by the smooth accent of the Spice Girl formerly known as Hammy the Hamster.

    Definitely get Caldwell on here. I love reading about their progress on the Dawn Wall and although Jorgeson has been doing lots of videos and speaking about it, Tommy has been less vocal and I’d love to hear his up-to-date thoughts.

    Have binged on Enormo for the past few months, and so far I’ve put out the good word at Smith Rock, Stoney Point, Red Rocks, the high Sierra and everywhere in between! I’ve had laughter, tears and enlightenment from your podcast, and I wish you the best of luck in life and work. Just donated! Climb safe brotha

    Good interview. Glad you were able to catch up with Hazel, who has been killing it on “trad” climbs. (Like you, I’m old enough to think “trad” means “start at the bottom and head up,” not “placing gear,” but I digress.”) I think I nominated her back when one of your listeners (listener’s mail episode? on the webpage?) was asking what women were pushing it on hard trad.

    I just heard, along with lots of other folks, that Tommy sent another hard pitch on the Dawn. If I’m not mistaken, this means he has red pointed–not in a push obviously–all but one, or maybe two, of the pitches. I’m sure you’ve thought of it, but you should stalk him for the Enormocast. Go visit Kelly. They’re neighbors right?

      Yeah. You did mention Hazel back then. Enormocast at your service.

      Caldwell has given a soft yes to the cast, meaning he said “sure, we should do that some time.”

      Sounds like the dawn wall just shut down again. Maybe time to reel him in.
