In Episode 215 of the Enormocast, I connect with climber, writer, former YoSAR member, Lauren Delaunay Miller.
Lauren found climbing in the waiting room of a doctor’s office and quickly made a plan to climb El Cap in 5 years despite not having any idea what rock climbing actually entailed.
She pursued her goal not quite relentlessly but nevertheless ended up in Yosemite a few years later. She did, indeed, climb the Nose in just under 5 years and then quickly pulled off a NIAD and a one-day ascent of the Triple Direct with Quinn Brett and Josie McKee.
In that same season, climbing lost some of its glow with a near-fatal accident of Lauren’s mentor and a series of other tragedies in her tight-knit scene. Helplessness in the face of these accidents made Lauren resolve to learn more and finally qualify to join the feted YoSAR.
Her latest challenge is completing a 78,000-word manuscript on some of the somewhat forgotten female legends of climbing.
