Episode 88: Chris McNamara- Living the Ever Changing Dream.

FullSizeRenderOn Episode 88, I return to the Mobile Studio with SuperTopo founder and El Cap Ace, Chris McNamara. Chris started early with an obsession for the big stone, and moved on to a life of adventure in business, in the sky, and around the world. Never one to wait for opportunity to come to him, Chris took inspiration from the Golden Age when so many Yosemite climbers went on to success as entrepreneurs, adventurers, scientists, and beyond. He has climbed El Cap nearly 100 times, founded two successful online companies, and pioneered wingsuit jumping in the US. Psyche is not in short supply with Chris in the studio.

Why Chris walked away from wingsuit flying.

On Episode 52, we wrap up the second half of my epic interview with Lynn Hill. See Part 1 here. Believing that she could do it was all that it really took for Lynn to free the Nose in 1993, and again in a day in 1994 (nearly 20 years ago! Holy crap!). This feat cemented her legacy as one of the greatest ever to pull on a pair of rock slippers. She also fills us in on dinking, Tub Talks, and who inspires her in the current women’s climbing scene.
