Alex Honnold and co-host Fitz Cahall share stories from the people who define the sport of climbing by pushing the boundaries and challenging the status quo of the previous generation. In season three, we dive deep into the art of risk taking. How do we get better at it? Why do we accept risk we don’t have to take? Can you reconcile your dreams with the reality that they could kill you? Each of us must ask when is the right time to walk away.

From the creators of The Dirtbag Diaries, Paddy O'Connell and Elizabeth Nakano take you on a wild traverse of the ideas that define the outdoor community and the stories behind them. No topic is taboo.
