I finally got around to watching last week’s Louder Than Eleven and ClimbingNarc‘s Talkshow #1 The Show With No Name. Brian interviewed professional climbers Paul Robinson and Alex Johnson on a variety of topics including viewer submitted questions. I found the training discussion (first 20 minutes) particularly interesting. Looking forward to the next one!
