On Episode 187, I sit down with recent trad convert, Brittany Goris. We were ensconced on a very cold evening in the Mobile Studio parked in the Supercrack Parking lot in Indian Creek. Brittany started as a boulderer and sport climber but has been spending her energies recently exploring the limits of her trad climbing. For better or worse, she battles constantly with ego and competitiveness, but strives to be her “best self” with every new challenge. The result has been a growing resume of bold trad ascents at the hardest grades with the ultimate dream of the elusive tick of 5.14 trad.
On Episode 165 of the Enormocast, I sit down with quite possibly the world’s best rock climber, Adam Ondra. I found Adam luxuriating with 4 friends and colleagues in the Super Bowl Campground in Indian Creek, UT of all places. He and his crew were on a whirlwind tour of Yosemite, Smith Rocks, and Indian Creek. Despite several days of crack-climbing-beat-down, Adam’s stoke comes ripping through as he talks climbing like a kid in a candy store. From bigwall trad, to sport, to comps, Adam’s enthusiasm comes through every minute of the talk.
