Yaks Gone Wild

The outdoors are the place to explore, grow and learn. We exist to encourage people to get outdoors and grow through adversity. This is our adventure podcast and on it we reflect on the lessons we learn outdoors and why adversity is good for us. We’re mostly talking rock climbing, with a little hiking and general outdoors mixed in.

Fear and friends - Fear E3

It's one thing to learn about how your fear shapes your outdoor experiences. You start to see how it interrupts your flow and learn to engage with it in a healthy way - It's another thing entirely to get comfortable enough with others to help them engage with their fear. As climbers, we're generally always interacting with others during our own testing moments. We have a chat with Alex and Ryan, two climbers from the SE QLD scene who have done a good deal of adventure climbing together, and reflect on how to lean into someone else's fear and be a good friend.
