Terrific interview. Surprised no one's commented on it.
In reply to Gordon Stainforth:

In reply to UKC Articles: That is such a cool interview. Just infinitely more meaningful and interesting than "ye i'd like to climb more font 8a's". Also so interesting coming from someone who perhaps defines the older vogue of "adventure" alpinism/mountaineering, which for better or for worse we've been steering away from over the last decade or so towards athleticism.
