Welcome to Blister’s weekly climbing podcast. I’m Dave Alie, the climbing editor at Blister, and host of All Things Climbing. Like most climbers, I was immediately smitten by the sport when I first found it. But in the years since, the community and culture the surrounds climbing has proved itself to be as interesting and influential in shaping my life as the actual climbing itself. For so many of us, it’s the reason climbing makes the leap from fun hobby to all-consuming lifestyle obsession.
This show is about that community and culture. We’ll cover major events, prominent trends in the sport, gear and equipment, and the individuals that make climbing’s community so colorful.

Best outdoor industry podcast of 2018

Dave Alie’s voice lingers of cedar and pine with a hit of campfire... but seriously the creative content on this podcast make this the most interesting outdoor podcast of the year. Dave dives into topics and conversations that are way deeper than the typical climber conversation. Intoxicating to the ears and tantalizing to the adventurous soul, this podcast drastically raises the bar.

Careful speaking from a place of white male privilege

When you sit in a place of privilege and say that “people” don’t need mentors or people who look like them to show them that even if they are not white, male or cis-gendered, they can still climb, it bothers me. The level of access and confidence to dive in and try something new comes with being in a place of privilege. I’m referring to the end of the episode with honnold and Birdwell when speaking about how people don’t need mentors to start climbing. Tell that to the shy gay girl who rarely sees someone like her climbing, or the inner city mixed race kid who doesn’t even know it exists.

EP 20: Bad Idea

The permit idea is ridiculous. If I roll into the valley at 11pm on friday and want to start a route on el cap at 4-6am, there is no way I will be able to talk to someone in the park about a permit. If the camping registration system is any indicator, then I wouldn't be able to talk to anyone till 8-10am, which is a serious inconvenience and waste of time. I agree with Alex, it self police's.
