    Ep 101 - Bit By A Rattlesnake - Julia Fiorino

    Ep 101 - Bit By A Rattlesnake - Julia Fiorino

    This is a crazy incident where my guest was bit by a rattlesnake in June of 2022 and ended up in the hospital for 12 straight days. She was climbing at Consumnes River Gorge in Lake Tahoe and it was going to be her first time trad climbing. The crew was getting all set up near the first climb, she decided to use the “facili-trees” (if you will) before putting on her harness. She walked away from the group and found a private area, was about to go when she felt something bit her! Tune into this crazy story of a rattlesnake bite and her long road to recovery.

Engaging and informative

Superb podcast!

John C Spring ,

Priceless information, the essential climbing podcast.

A great podcast. As a climber who works in an industry that is geared towards risk reduction (offshore oil production) I really appreciate the presentation and lesson learned.

Each episode gives the climbing community critically important lessons that may, and will, raise the awareness of our decision making functionality and limitations.
The podcast most definitely contributes to a safer pursuit of the activity we all love.
For me it’s now being very much aware of fatigue, shortcuts and time pressures. Thanks Ashely this is an outstanding effort and thank you to all the contributors.

Simply the Best
