On Episode 169 of the Enormocast, I meet up at the home of a mutual friend with Quinn Brett. Quinn took a monstrous fall on El Cap in October of 2017 that should have killed her, but it didn’t. Instead, Quinn is left paralyzed from the waist down and facing a new life with a slew of difficulties to overcome. In this talk, an uncertain woman comes clean about her regrets and fears for the future. But she also grows more hopeful by the day that a full life can be resumed complete with adventure, excitement, love, and optimism. Part cautionary tale, part inspiration, Quinn’s story is a different type of climbing story, for sure.

This one brought tears to my eyes. I love all Enormo episodes but this is your best. Quinn is a beautiful and powerful soul. Her passion for life is evident with every word she speaks.
Another amazing episode! You need to get Andrew Boyd on the Enormocast one day! Squamish legend!!
