On today's show we are talking to Robbie Phillips, the UK climber with a difference. Robbie has historically been a climber concentrating in the sport climbing arena, but has recently been dipping his toes into that most British of disciplines, bold trad.
We chatted to him about his recent landmark ascent of 'The New Statesman' (E9, 7a), and asked him what had made him shift focus from hard but safe to bold and scary.
And of course it's Monday so we have a new BananaFingers DEAL OF THE WEEK, which this week is 20% off everything in the BIG WALL range at Bananafingers.co.uk. All you need to do to take advantage of the offer is type in the code 'CD472' at checkout.
