This week, Alyssa and Haley talk to 10-year-old Selah Schneiter, the youngest person ever to climb El Capitan. Selah shares how she got started in climbing and progressed quickly through the sport. She talks about her decision to climb “The Nose” of El Capitan, the logistics of eating, sleeping, and surviving on the wall, and what it felt like to reach the top. Plus, Selah’s motto that helps her get through the tough moments in life and on the wall.
Alyssa has her bags packed and race nails painted for Copenhagen, and our hosts answer two mailbag questions about minimalist running shoes and proper run form.
