Episode 105: Will Stanhope – Real Men Don’t Cry (Mostly).

On Episode 105, I sit down for a trip down memory lane with Canadian hero Will Stanhope. After cutting his teeth in Squamish, Will, and his buddy Jason Kruk, took Canadian climbing up a notch or two in the last decade. In an era of hotshot boulderers and sport climbers, Will took the opposite track towards big trad climbing and heady leads. Humble almost to a fault, Will continues to pull off hard leads in a style that hearkens back to the Golden Age more than the Internet Age. What’s more, he’s willing to buy you a Kokonee if you send his routes in better style. (Hey, Kokanee! Sponsor this guy already!).
