Colin is a world class Alpinist who has achieved many incredible first Ascents all over the world. We talk about his introduction to the mountains as a kid and how progressed into the Alpinist that he is today. Colin gives insights into how he sets his ambitious goals, talks about why he enjoys climbing solo, the head space that this requires and his wonderful philosophy of Adventure vs Sport. Later in the episode we get into his gear nerd side and the relationship he has with food.


Here is a short selection of Colin's most notable ascents:
Torre Traverse (Aguja Standhardt, Punta Herron, Torre Egger, Cerro Torre), first ascent (2008), first one-day ascent (2016), and first reverse traverse (2015).
