Essential Food for Thought
I wait anxiously for each new Sharp End podcast. Each episode provides an intimate examination of accidents in the form of interviews with climbers and first responders. It's essential food for thought. I climbed for years without any what-if or when shtf plan or training. I have since sought to learn as much as possible. I am very grateful to the climbers and first responders for the openness with which they share the details of their experiences
