On Episode 181, I sit down with climber, industry insider, and amputee, Malcolm Daly. Malcolm is a lifer who has been steeped in climbing culture and the climbing industry since the late 60s. Among so many profound achievements, he somewhat haphazardly found himself at the forefront of US bouldering while in Fort Collins and started the gear company Trango. Perhaps most profoundly, Malcolm lost a leg to a severe climbing accident in 1999. This prompted him to help start Paradox Sports with the idea of helping disabled folks approach climbing and outdoor sports as “normally” as possible. Overall, Malcolm is a survivor in life and in business whose positivity has propelled him through life with a quick smile and a laugh.
