Adrian Ballinger is a machine for managing risk in the big mountains. Whether he’s leading adventures with his Alpenglow Expeditions, summiting Everest or K2 without supplemental oxygen, or just living his rad Tahoe life, there never seems to be a chill moment in Adrian’s life. On the podcast, we talk about the three critical mentors to his success in the mountains, performance-enhancing drugs in the mountains, what counts when you’re climbing without oxygen, and much more. Adrian’s Everest Base Camp manager, Emily Turner, asks Inappropriate Questions.
