On Episode 72 of the Enormocast, I barrel through record snow in the Previa to meet up with Kelly Cordes. Kelly has graced the Mobile Studio and the Live Stage on the Enormocast, but on this night, he proudly recounts the harrowing task of writing (and saying) The Tower: A Chronicle of Climbing and Controversy on Cerro Torre. Kelly trotted the globe in search of answers to the long standing mystery of Cesare Maestri‘s claim to the first ascent of Cerro Torre in 1959. He also enlightens events surrounding the controversial chopping of the 1970 Compressor Route. Finally, he calls for justice in the death of Toni Egger.

Episode 10: On our movie date, Kelly Cordes explains the coward's guide to alpinism.

NERDS!

On the first double-digit episode of the Enormocast, co-host Kelly Cordes and I discuss the the films we saw at the 5Point Film Fest and outdoor film making in general. We end up deciding that climbers are the nerds of extreme sports. Turns out that big wave surfers and big falls kayakers are way, way cooler than climbers and ultra-runners are far tougher. Kelly also repeats the word “porn” enough times to make me uncomfortable.

Links to some of the films we rant about:

Aquadettes, Racing the End, Code Red, Cold, Obe and Ashima, Dark Side of the Lens, Kadoma
