I recommend this podcast to all my climber/non-climber friends! Kathy does an amazing job of interweaving the (often intense/emotional) stories of her guests alongside her own personal experiences. Each episode is compelling in it’s own way and will bring you from laughter to tears. Can’t wait for Season 2!

Real deal

Fact: fear stops so much of what we do. But after one life-altering day in the Gunks, Caitlin stopped putting things on hold and made some big changes because she saw what happens when you lose the chance—when you always think, “I’ll do it later.” and then later doesn’t exist.

There’s a remarkable beauty of relative perspective. I mean, it’s kind of amazing just to think that we all have this unique opportunity to alter reality. And some things in life are just good and some are bad—really bad. Or are they? The concept that it all comes down to our perception is sort of an interesting one—a gift—to create good of bad. Alex had the individual realization that let him see life this way.

But it still doesn’t keep things from happening, and it wasn’t going to stop the shit storm that was about to happen—that Alex was about to walk into. Two weeks before leaving for Patagonia for a climbing trip, Alex’s life was turned upside down. Introduction from the one and only Conrad Anker (he’s an alpinist: pronounced “al-pee-nist”).
