Episode 145: Mary Harlan – Almost Famous.

On Episode 145 of the Enormocast, I sit down with my friend and Carbondale local, Mary Harlan. I often get requests for the “everyman (sic)” interview, and though Mary is not ordinary, nor is she a man, she does tread near the mainstream category as not only a good and experienced climber, but a mother, wife, and career firefighter. Mary talks about her ambition to be a sponsored climber, her ambition to be the best, and her ambition to stink really bad. Perhaps not quite the “everywoman”, but Mary certainly tried to have it all and realized not a moment too soon when something in her climbing had to give.
