The Road to the 2020 Olympics w Adam Ondra
SEASON THREE: The Road to the 2020 Olympics with Adam Ondra, the 26-year-old Czech climber that is taking the world by storm. Although most people outside the climbing community have not heard his name, I guarantee that will change the moment he steps onto the stage at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. Adam Ondra is the man to beat and for a lot of reasons. Adam is the only person to have won both the lead and the bouldering world cup title in the same year. And he’s the only person to have climbed 5.15d. Or flashed 5.15a. All while slaying V15 and 16’s. Ondra is that formidable. Only a small handful of climbers can compete, except of course, in the discipline known as Speed Climbing, the third discipline in the combined format for the 2020 Olympics. If you ever wondered what it will take to win a Gold Medal, or what the Tomoa Skip in Speed happens to be, you are in for a treat. Adam shares what he believes will be the winning recipe. “The most important event will come down to bouldering.” To read the feature article/blog and watch the latest videos, please visit https://www.tripleblack.com/adam-ondra-2020-olympics Royalty Free Music from Bensound

The Road to 2020 Olympics w John Burgman of Climbing Magazine
SEASON THREE: The Road to 2020 Olympics w John Burgman Podcast Host: Dan Goodwin As most everyone has heard, there will be three disciplines featured as a 'Combined Sport' in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. Those three disciplines include speed climbing, bouldering, and lead. Unfortunately, most people are confused as to the format and the process as of which the athletes will be chosen. Until I started digging deeper, I naively assumed every country would be represented, but as I quickly discovered, that isn’t necessarily the case. In fact, there is no guarantee that United States or any other major country will be represented. How can that be when we have so many climbers climbing at such a high level? That’s a really good question. Well, you are about to find out. With me, I have John Burgman with Climbing magazine, who has been reporting on the World Cup Competition scene for as long as I can remember. So, I couldn’t think of anyone better to help us understand the format and how the athletes will be chosen. TOPICS COVERED: 1) How will athletes be chosen? 2)How many opportunities will athletes have to qualify? 3) How many athletes will be allowed to compete? 4) How many athletes per country and genre? 5) Does an athlete have to compete in all three disciplines? 6)How will the scores be computed? 7) How many Gold Medals will be awarded? 8) Who will be representing the USA Climbing Team? 9) What are their strengths and weaknesses? 10) Who will most likely make to the Olympics? USA CLIMBING TEAM Men's: Zach Galla Nathaniel Coleman Sean Bailey Colin Duffy Drew Ruana Women's: Kyra Condie Brooke Raboutou Natalia Grossman Ashima Shiraishi Margo Hayes

THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS RACE Featuring BRAD GOBRIGHT & JIM REYNOLDS w HANS FLORINE & JOHN LONG
THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS RACE! Featuring Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds - the new record holders for the fastest time up The Nose on El Capitan in Yosemite Valley, California. Their time: 2 hrs, 19 mins, & 44 seconds - shaving the nearly 4 mins off the previous record held by Hans Florine (also on this show), and Alex Honnold. In addition, we have a very special guest, the legendary John Long, who, along with Jim Birdwell and Billy Westbay, became the first team to ascend The Nose in a day - doing it just under 15 hours! What's amazing about this feat, is that it happened in 1975, before the invention of spring-loaded camming devices, sticky rubber shoes, or ultralight ropes. So you are in for a treat. Not only do we talk about the history of the World's Most Dangerous Race, we talk about the extraordinary risk these climbers are taking, and what it will take to break the 2-hour barrier. As well as what happened to Quinn Brett, the super talented climber that was seriously injured while attempting to break the women's record she once held.

STEVE McCLURE 'The British Strongman'
STEVE McCLURE - the author of Beyond Limits, just established UK's hardest route: Rainman 9b (5.15b) at Malham Cove, home of another incredibly difficult McClure route: Overshadow - which was repeated by the legendary Adam Ondra back in 2007, confirming the rating as 9a+ (5.15a). If you want to learn how to navigate the most difficult climbing sequences without relying on your strength, finding the path of least resistance, this is one interview you don't want to miss. ABOUT: Steve McClure (born July 25, 1970) started climbing when he was a child with his parents. Initially he practiced trad climbing and started sport climbing only when he was 24. In 1998 he made the first ascent of Mutation, at Raven Tor, his first 9a and second 9a of UK in history. In 2000 he made the first ascent of another 9a, Northern Lights, in Kilnsey. The route was an old project of Ben Moon. In 2003 he established his third 9a, with the first ascent of Rainshadow, in Malham Cove. From 2000 to 2004 he competed in the Lead Climbing World Cup and in European Championships. On May 23, 2007 he made the first ascent of his hardest route, Overshadow in Malham Cove. This route is an extension to the 8a+ Overnite Sensation and at 2013 it represents the UK's hardest sport route. The free ascent took McClure about 30 days of work in three years. On May 16, 2011 Adam Ondra made the first and only repeat of the route, confirming the grade as a hard 9a+ (5.15a). In 2017 McClure completed his seven year project in Malham Cove; Rainman. Although Steve was reluctant to give the route a grade, he believed Rainman to be be considerably harder than Overshadow 9a+ (5.15a) - thus giving the route a modest grade of 9b (5.15b), making it UK's hardest route, and one of the hardest routes in the world.

HAZEL FINDLAY 'UK's Boldest Female Climber'
ABOUT: Hazel Findlay is one of the boldest female rock climbers in the world today. Trad climbing at the age of seven on the limestone sea cliffs of Pembroke, it didn't take long for Hazel's talents to be revealed. For six straight years, she was the British junior champion. But at 16, Hazel decided to focus on outdoor climbing, specializing in trad and big wall climbing. In a relatively short period of time, Hazel established herself as a dominating force, free climbing El Capitán in Yosemite Valley, CA., three times on three different routes: Golden Gate 5.13a, PreMuir 5.13c/d, and Free Rider 5.13a - all 33 to 34 pitches respectively. Naturally, this has caught many people's attention. In 2013, Hazel was awarded Climbing Magazine's prestigious Golden Piton Award. Although I heard of Hazel Findlay many years before, hearing the whispers of a chic being as bold as any dude out there, she really didn't come onto my radar screen until 2011, when she, along Alex Honnold, captured the 2nd and 3rd ascent of an unrepeated route I had established back in 1983, in Quoddy Head State Park in Northern Maine. Route: Maniac 5.13c/d After that, I knew it was just a matter of time before our paths intersected. I hope you enjoy this week's Podcast.

KAI LIGHTNER 'Silver Medalist' at the 2016 Youth World Climbing Championships
In Honor of 'Martin Luther King', we proudly introduce Kai Lightner, one of America's most influential rock climbers on the scene today. "I obviously knew going into it, I was doing something different, especially in my community. It was a big deal I was doing it because no one rock climbed. And the way out typically in an African American community is by being a basketball player. Or a football player. Doing sports along those lines. So by being a rock climber, I was definitely being outside the box."
