Episode 259: Lindsey Hamm – Pulling the Ripcord

Photos Lane Mathis, Sam Stuckey

On Episode 259, I sit down in Ouray, Colorado with one of the most ebullient guests I’ve ever had on the Enormocast, Lindsey Hamm. Yes, I said “ebullient”. Lindsey is a climber and guide originally from a hard-partying and wild upbringing in East Texas. A brief but formative sojourn in the music biz chased Lindsey out of Texas and eventually to Durango, Colorado. Now Lindsey has traded that very non-climby life for one in the mountains with clients and friends alike. Late to climbing, Lindsey nevertheless “pulled the ripcord” and dove straight into trad-climbing, big routes, and guiding from the get go. Lindsey is on track to become one of only about 20 woman to get her AMGA/IFMGA certification to guide at all levels on all terrain anywhere in the world.
