To me, the coolest things in sports happen behind the scenes. This week’s Psyche vid is Steve Lapen on the first American ascent of Ghetto Booty (5.14c/d) at Mt Charleston. What makes the vid special isn’t the climbing, but the story of Lapen’s dedication. He’s not a professional climber, but a dad with a full-time job, projecting a route more than 6 hours from his home. Not many people have the motivation to start their training after most of the world’s gone to bed, at least to the level required to make a world-class ascent. When I’m tired at the end of a long day, it’s visions like this one that keep me off the couch and in the garage (my gym), where life is truly better.
