Episode 167: TAPS part Deux AKA Climbing Humor is Dead.

Clockwise from Top : The Nose, El Capitan. Andrew Bisharat hungover but sending in Wales. Steve Dilk sans fixed lines on El Cap.

On Episode 167, Steve Dilk, Andrew Bisharat, and I load up the whiskey glasses and sit down for a good old fashioned shit-talking session about climbing trends that have died, should have died, or are wobbling toward the grave. What better way to start the New Year than a metaphor about death? First we review last year’s Zombies, and then on the hit list this year are Gear Reviews, Fixed Ropes, Mexican Beer, Unhealthy Climbers, and more. Sit back, try to relax, and try not to overreact if your sacred cow is on the list.

Episode 166: James Lucas – A Recipe for Success.

Right and Bottom: Dean Fidelman

On Episode 166 of the Enormocast, fan-favorite James Lucas returns! The intervening years since James’ most recent previous show and first appearance on the Enormocast have sobered the pie-baking-dirtbag into a contributing member of society. Now in Boulder at Climbing Magazine and happily dating pro-climber Nina Williams, our former redpoint-soloist and reluctant spokes-person for the road dawgs finds himself stationary, gainfully-employed, performance-driven, and frankly, happier than he’s ever been – or so he says.

Episode 165: Adam Ondra – Getting Closer to the Luck.

Photographer: Clockwise from left: PETR PAVLICEK, BERNARDO GIMENEZ, ARCHIVE, PAVEL BLAZEK.

On Episode 165 of the Enormocast, I sit down with quite possibly the world’s best rock climber, Adam Ondra. I found Adam luxuriating with 4 friends and colleagues in the Super Bowl Campground in Indian Creek, UT of all places. He and his crew were on a whirlwind tour of Yosemite, Smith Rocks, and Indian Creek. Despite several days of crack-climbing-beat-down, Adam’s stoke comes ripping through as he talks climbing like a kid in a candy store. From bigwall trad, to sport, to comps, Adam’s enthusiasm comes through every minute of the talk.
