We take the leap, and learn how to lead.
We ask pro-climbers Joe Kinder and Alex Honnold about their dreams, the worst thing they’ve ever done, their biggest regrets in life, and food preferences.
Welcome to our new Ask the Route Setters series, where we ask questions new climbers might.
First up – something that might stick out on your mind – what’s up with those large, protruding holds on the BKB walls, what are they called and how does one use ’em?
What makes rock climbing so appealing? What is it about climbing up and down walls that is so addictive?
I was climbing the 30 Wall the other day on a high-gravity day. I was flailing; failing hard. You know those days when you can’t seem to get your footwork quite right? When the skin on your finger-tips is shredded down paper thin and your arms are pumped after a few attempts? One of those days.
