On Episode 212 of the Enormocast, brothers in spray, Andrew Bisharat and Steve Dilk return for the annual chat about the fallen trends in climbing. Despite 2020 being a hellscape, we still managed a tongue-in-cheek raucous conversation about the stuff we lost to COVID’s shut downs and economic hardship, as well as long time trends that we believe to be dying out. We saved a small corner for our cancel wish list, and finally a surprise submission (even to the contributor) from Reddit. On the block this year: secret spots, Olympic fury, Dilk’s manhood, “Rig”, Drones, Ground up ascents, and the platform on which this very podcast resides: shit-talking. We even addressed your very dignity and humanity: is it also a dying trend?
On Episode 190 of the Enormocast, I sit down with friends Andrew Bisharat and Steve Dilk take aim at foibles, dangers, and annoyances in climbing that continue to plague our sport and our minds. What’s on the block this year? Bad dog owners, simul-rappelling, snotty belay testers, speed climbing, and more. Fueled by our whiskey sponsor, lots of stuff gets said that may be TONGUE IN CHEEK so if your sacred cow gets skewered, try not to drive off the road in rage.
