Chamonix-based climber and podcaster Jake Holland has produced an insightful episode with world-class US alpinist Colin Haley, who moved to Chamonix a few years ago. Colin's best-known climbs range from bold first solo ascents of Patagonian peaks, including Aguja Standhardt and Torre Egger, to speedy link-ups of the Torres Traverse with Rolando Garibotti (the first ascent) in 2008, the first reverse traverse in 2015 and a sub-24 hour repeat with Alex Honnold in 2016.

In the podcast, Jake interviews Colin about his adventurous upbringing in Seattle, goal setting, developing a mindset for alpinism and his philosophy on adventure versus sport - with some technical geekery involving gear and nutrition thrown in for good measure.
