One month ago or so, I made a quick trip to Helsinki, Finland. Nalle Hukkataival had agreed to do a podcast, but as he was soon embarking on a four month roadtrip and still wanted to keep trying his Lappnor project whenever possible, he didn't want to commit to anything until the very last second... Finally I got the ok, and went.
When Nalle picked me up at the airport, I didn't have much of a plan and not even any idea where we were going to do the podcast. He suggested we should go to an old private gym on the outskirts of the city, and so we did. Luckily no one else was there at the time.
In this interview, we talk a lot about his Lappnor project, first ascents and projecting, but also about things like grading, pesäpallo, quantum physics and more.
Nalle just went to South Africa where he still has a few unclimbed projects.
I'm going to stick my neck out a bit and say this one is actually pretty good!
Hope you enjoy it.
For easier listening, I suggest you use the Podbean app.
