    Falling In A Fumarole (Ep. 61)

    Falling In A Fumarole (Ep. 61)

    A fumarole is an opening in the earth which emits steam and gases such as carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen chloride, and hydrogen sulfide. The steam forms when superheated water boils as its pressure drops when it emerges from the ground. These holes can be very dangerous. Listen to episode 61 as Scott tells Ashley about his fall into a fumarole during a solo ski mo attempt on Mt Hood in Oregon.

    Did you know that January is National CBD Month? I’ve spent some time learning more about CBD and how to integrate into my daily life thanks to some friends at Aceso Hemp. Aceso uses the restorative power of plants to create highly targeted products, with lines that support Wellness, Calming, and Soothing.

    A 200-Foot Tumble on Longs Peak

    A 200-Foot Tumble on Longs Peak

    On the morning of September 5, Annie Weinmann and her climbing partner started up the North Chimney, a broad 500-foot slot that leads climbers to the Diamond, Colorado's premier alpine wall. Annie had done the North Chimney before and was comfortable climbing the easy terrain unroped and in approach shoes. But when she got slightly off-route, a foot slip led to a terrible tumble. In Episode 39 of the Sharp End, Annie tells Ashley what happened and how she survived a 200-foot fall, plus some fascinating insight into the circumstances that brought her to this point.

    The Sharp End is presented by Mammut, with additional support from Desert Mountain Medicine and Suunto. This podcast is produced by the American Alpine Club.

    Crevasse Fall in the Tetons!

    Crevasse Fall in the Tetons!

    Tyler Willis and a friend were descending from a successful ascent of Mt. Owen in Grand Teton National Park. It was late in the day when they reached the Teton Glacier, which they had crossed without a problem early that morning. Just a few steps later, Tyler plunged into a hidden crevasse, an extremely rare accident for the Tetons. By the time climbers pulled him to the surface, he was hypothermic, and it wasn't until the next day that rangers could helicopter him to safety. Hear all about it in Episode 58 of the Sharp End.

    Visit Sharpendpodcast.com to find video footage from the rescue and information on recognizing and treating hypothermia.

    The Sharp End podcast is presented by Mammut, with additional support from Desert Mountain Medicine, Suunto, and Minus33. This podcast is produced by the American Alpine Club.

Educating, Thrilling, and Enjoyable

Ashley does a wonderful job navigating individual experiences in a story telling format that is super educational. I started listening on episode 61 and I learned so much about fumaroles in a short 40 minutes.

Favorite Podcast

Started listening to podcasts in April of 2020 after I had extensive reconstructive knee surgery and the world was on lockdown, each story feels like you are right there with them and not stuck in a world within a pandemic. Binged the entire podcast and am still trying to find another podcast that compares as I patiently await the first of each month.

One of the top adventure podcasts!

I love a solid survival/adventure story and Ashley delivers with these podcasts. While these stories may seem graphic, they are actual quite helpful in understanding what happened in different outdoor activity accidents. I look forward to the first of each month when a new podcast comes out! Thanks Ashley for the excellent podcast!
