On Episode 262 of the Enormocast, I connect across continents and oceans to Switzerland and Caroline George. Caroline is one of the most accomplished climbers you’ve never heard of, an early female IFMGA guide, a mom, and a Swiss Ms. She holds US, French, and Swiss passports which open the world for climbing and professional opportunities. Though Caroline almost lost her way into the world of being a city-based lawyer, the mountains beckoned after a personal tragedy and a near-fatal accident, and soon she was accidentally dropping her tools on her future husband and guiding partner in Ouray, CO. Caroline rounded out her life goals with the birth of her daughter. Now based in the Swiss and French Alps, Caroline guides worldwide and advocates for more inclusion and acceptance of woman in the guiding industry, climbing community, and the world at large.
