Episode 121: Christopher Parker – Went Down To The Crossroads.

On Episode 121 of the Enormocast, I sit down with friend, musician, and former band-mate, Chris Parker. Chris and I discuss his ambitions with both music and climbing, and why its so tough to be addicted to both. His mission in life is to reconcile the all-consuming passion for climbing with the discipline and demands of musicianship. Right now, climbing is king, but if that slick agent showed up and dangled a contract and a tour? Who knows? We also debate whether climbing art exists as its own movement. Finally, most importantly, Chris plays us four of his own tunes.

Song 1: The Climbers. Song 2: Roll ‘Em While You Can. Song 3: Yosemite Gold. Song 4: Mothers and Fathers.

Episode 104: Ines Papert – Walking the The Beautiful Line.

On episode 104, I sit down in the Mobile Studio with German climber, Ines Papert. Ines started like many by hiking in her local mountains in Bavaria. But one day she decided walking around cliff faces sucked, and her fate was sealed. She has since become one of the top mixed ice climbers, a strong alpinist, and a top notch rock climber. Her proudest achievement? Raising up a 15 year old kid who loves the the outdoors, accordion, and big trucks. Climbing and exploration go hand in hand with being a mom for Ines.

On Episode 89 of the Enormocast, I sit down in an undisclosed location in Salt Lake City with Colorado climber and Everest sumiteer, Emily Harrington. Emily came storming out of the gym as a “kid” and took down many of Rifle’s hardest as a teenager. But unlike many of her compatriots, she aspires to become a legit high altitude mountaineer, and already has a free El Cap ascent under her belt after only three years of trad climbing. Emily is quietly building the skill set to become one of the best all-arounders in the game. From 5.14 to 8000 meters, this girl wants to do it all.
