On Episode 219 of the Enormocast, I connect online with Genevive Walker. Genevive is living the “dream” on the road full time. In the last year, she’s taken some offers for sponsorship and is now trying to reconcile the life of a public figure and “pro” with the realities of living hand-to-mouth in a van as a dirtbag climber. Add the need to be active in the community as a Black woman climber, someone recovering from disordered eating, and an athlete, Genevive is not sure she can do it all. However, she’s threatening to be a threat as a mentor, guide, and spokesperson, just give her a minute to find and eradicate the poop smell in her van and she WILL change the world.
On Episode 157, I sit down in Bishop California with adventure climber and long lost friend, Katie Lambert, for a raucous, story-filled interview. Katie recounts her journey from the distinctly climbingless State of Louisiana to Toulumne and Yosemite Valley. Katie tells of her travails trying to get into America’s Hat, climbing in the Northwest Territories and more. She has been running clinics at the Women’s Climbing Festival and explains why its important that women find each other in climbing. Finally, Katie show’s us the essence of life and death at #katiesgrosspicsofinstagram
