The Builder's Journey

Everyone copes with mental health issues differently and one fantastic method is the physical act of climbing. Alex’s guests today are Dave Dantas, Carol Johnson, and Larry Moore, who explain the goal behind Eagle Climbing & Fitness’ event “Climb for Hope” and how climbing can provide a safe space for anyone to be vulnerable and grow with a ton of community support.


In this episode, Alex, Dave, Carol and Larry talk about…

  • Building new coping skills through climbing
  • Why climbing isn’t all about upper body strength and is great for all ages
  • Different climbing disciplines and trainings offered at Eagle Climbing & Fitness
  • Incredible support of the climbing community 
  • What people don’t always see in movies like “Free Solo” and “The Dawn Wall”
  • Creative aspect of climbing 
  • Memory lane fun: 24 Hours of Moab
  • Leadership, climbing, and mental health 
  • Suicide prevention and free trainings offered from Speak Up/Reach Out
