Episode 105: Will Stanhope – Real Men Don’t Cry (Mostly).

On Episode 105, I sit down for a trip down memory lane with Canadian hero Will Stanhope. After cutting his teeth in Squamish, Will, and his buddy Jason Kruk, took Canadian climbing up a notch or two in the last decade. In an era of hotshot boulderers and sport climbers, Will took the opposite track towards big trad climbing and heady leads.¬†Humble almost to a fault, Will continues to pull off hard leads in a style that hearkens back to the Golden Age more than the Internet Age. What’s more, he’s willing to buy you a Kokonee if you send his routes in better style. (Hey, Kokanee! Sponsor this guy¬†already!).
