On Episode 251 of the Enormocast, I talk with legendary British climber, Steve McClure. Steve was introduced to climbing as a youth by his folks, and by his teens, he possessed a deep well of trad skills. The two successive serious accidents sent him spinning away from climbing for a time, but the advent of sport climbing, and his discovery of the joys of trying hard, brought Steve back into the fold. Within a few years following his return, Steve was THE top British sport climber and perhaps the best in the world at a certain type of power endurance climbing found at the infamous Raven Tor. Now approaching 50 years on a rope, Steve is still trying hard, still looking for that immersive experience, and still loving climbing.

Really dug the chat with Steve McClure! Having first licking into the climbing scene here in Carbondale, IL as a 25 year old in the mid-nineties and pouring through the mags/books, interviews with cats like Steve and John Sherman get me grinning wide. Thanks for doing what you do
Thanks for the kind note. I had a great time talking to Steve and it shows, I think.
