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.
