What it's like to be a pro climber?

What it's like to be a pro climber? A career in climbing.

This morning I stumbled across an interesting podcast episode. The name of the podcast was Dirtbag Diaries and the episode revolved around climbing as a career. Hosted by Fitz Cahall, it's a neat little look into the realities of climbing as a career and a reminder that for every climbing celebrity you see in the media, living the life, there are hundreds of others who aren't. More importantly, the episode talks about how when you make your passion your job, you run the risk of falling out of love with it. Check out the episode by DBD to hear Zack Giffin and Timmy O’Neill share their stories.
