Margret Grebowicz joins PTO to talk about her new book, ‚Mountains and Desire: Climbing vs. The End of the World’. We talked about how the notion of the boho climbing rat, who forgoes a normal life and conventional ideas of success has given way to the idea of the modern climber as emblematic of entrepreneurial achievement and heteronormativity.
