On Episode 234 of the Enormocast, I connect via lousy internet with Belgian, Siebe Vanhee. At the moment of recording, Siebe is sitting inside the famous “Caf” in Yosemite valley – the appropriate site of so much spray over the years. Siebe is in the valley with Sebastien Berthe to attempt the Dawn Wall. Siebe first talks of getting somewhat humbled on the first pitches of that storied wall, then we move to his training in the alpine. The film Notes from the Wall, produced by Siebe himself, becomes the cornerstone of a talk about goals, maturity, and relationships. He went from gym rat to bigwall trad climber and the journey has not been without its triumphs and tragedy. And at the posting of this episode, his Dawn Wall attempt is ongoing and in no way a certain success.
