I’m a big fan of the interviews done on Boulder’s ClimbTalk Radio and thanks to the hard work of Dave McAllister we can all peruse transcripts of the shows. The latest interview to be transcribed with B3Bouldering.com‘s Jamie Emerson touches on a wide variety of topics including Jamie’s work on a guidebook for RMNP and Mt. Evans, the evolution of his blog and his status as the unofficial Sheriff of the climbing community:
You know, if I question, “Did someone start there or do this,” they take it really personally. Even though I think it’s important that we discuss these issues and I know a lot of times it’s my friends. In fact, I called Dave Graham out for starting in an inappropriate place and he was not happy with me, at all. We had to have a little talk about it. He was like, “It’s really ridiculous that you’re calling me out.” I’m like, “Hey, I’m an equal opportunity Sheriff. I’ll write tickets for everyone.” No one’s above being questioned, including myself. Ironically, I feel like I get questioned more than anyone.
