Episode # 15 - Tight Climbing Shoes and Other Bad Beta

On this week’s episode Alex Handhold takes a break from talking about his epic solo to discuss his foundation, Peter Croft keeps asking us to throw the ball, and Steve discusses an encounter with Cosplayers while ice climbing.

We argue about whether or not beginner climbing shoes are useful when you first start climbing (Matt is alone in thinking absolutely not).

We close out talking about competition bouldering and dry-tooling; both of which are, spoiler alert: very silly.

*Please support Anna's 2024 Olympic fund for speed climbing.



Anna gives details on how to enter for a chance to win a brush at the end of the show; send your answers in and we'll pick our favorites for the brush! 

If you have questions for us about climbing, #vanlife, gear.... or what it's like to be pro climbers (we are not pro climbers), whatever, send us a message or email at info@badbetapodcast.com
