    Oval Peak Misery (Ep. 79)

    Oval Peak Misery (Ep. 79)

    Glenn Block and his friend Enji set out to climb Oval Peak, an 8,800-foot mountain in the North Cascades of Washington state. At the time, Glenn was a novice hiker and admits he didn’t fully understand what he was getting himself into. As a result, he has many learnings from this experience. Being prepared and prepping for a hike like this is extremely important. What I admire about Glenn is that he’s humble enough in his personal mountaineering journey to share these learnings with you to minimize future outdoor accidents. Listen in to episode 79 to hear more.

    Rescued Off Kit Carson Peak (Ep. 78)

    Rachel Pisula set out on July 29, 2020 on a pretty nice, mostly sunny day in Colorado to climb two fourteeners in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains about 3 hours from her home in Golden, Colorado. By this point in the summer, Rachel thinks she already hiked ten fourteeners with her dog, Emmett. She was feeling strong and confident. Her objective on this particular day was to climb Challenger Point and Kit Carson Peak in a day. Unfortunately, she got turned around on a tricky part of the hike and ended up needing a rescue. Listen in to hear Rachel’s full story and how her and her dog Emmett made it down.

    I Witnessed A Free Solo Fall (Ep. 77)

    I Witnessed A Free Solo Fall (Ep. 77)

    Clara was climbing at a local crag in Tennessee called King’s Bluff where she witnessed a free solo accident & was heavily involved in the rescue. The climber was out alone on a weekday, and her and her partner were the only other people at the crag. The climber that fell was climbing on an unestablished route and ended up being rescued via boat on the Cumberland River. A pretty interesting story and Clara definitely has some key takeaways to share with Sharp End listeners. Tune here to hear her story.

Laura skied first, Kevin followed, as Adam approached the slope, he triggered a size 2.5 avalanche that pushed Laura into a terrain trap and buried her with over 12 feet of snow.

More mindful in my approach

As an outdoor lover with many varying interests (too many to gain expertise in just one) I so appreciate this podcast, host and guests sharing their experiences. Many of these experiences are traumatic and painful to recount and as a listener I have great respect and admiration for that. I have no doubt that those of us listening are safer in our endeavors because of this platform. Personally it has changed the way I approach my interests and how I assess risk. Many thanks -M

Long time listener

For my time which is more valuable to me than money, there is no better show than the sharp end for adventure enthusiasts. I’ve been listening to Ashley from the very beginning and it’s impossible to say how many accidents she has helped me to avoid because of the lessons learned shared in this space. Keep it up and thank you.

Super lacking “interview”

Really hoped a few tough questions would be asked of Ken Wylie. Shocked the host didn’t even read his book in advance of the “interview”. Shows keep getting weaker and weaker.
