Hey there. I'm a climbing coach and climbing content creator out of Kansas City Missouri. I try my best to touch on areas that are often ignored or forgotten in climbing such as breath and mindfulness. This podcast will cover aspects of life and climbing through my unique perspective and have guests now and then. Presence is the most important part of your climbing practice. Never forget it!

Welcome to Episode 10 of the Condor Climbing Cast! In this episode, I chat with Timothy Place. Tim has a wide range of skills that include a Master's Degree in music composition; accomplished ice climber, mountaineer, rock climber, web developer and happy father of two! I know right... he's pretty neat. I was filled with wonderment while chatting with Tim.  It was total story-time with your cool uncle kind of situation. After this conversation, he took me on my first alpine climb "Petite Grepon, South Face", in Estes Park, Colorado. There were a few audio issues throughout the first part of the conversation, but it clears up near the middle. I hope you enjoy!
