My guest today is Todd Offenbacher. Todd is one of the most amazing, hilarious, and entertaining people I know. He’s a mountain guide, a badass rock-climber with first ascents in Pakistan, China, Peru, Alaska, Antarctica, and more, he’s a Lake Tahoe television personality for Outside TV, he used to be a Body Builder at Muscle Beach in LA, he’s currently in the middle of a community-building passion project where he puts in climbing routes all over Lake Tahoe for beginner and intermediate climbers and kids, he’s the founder of Tahoe Adventure Film Festival, he’s a professional speaker, and essentially a stand-up comedian. No one has a bad time when Todd’s around and his story-telling is world-class.

“I’ve done a lot of first ascents around the world, but it’s at this point in my life, reflecting on that, I’d have to say [my greatest achievement in climbing is] a lot of the easy and moderate route development that I’ve done here around my community. You know, you’re not gonna get on the cover of a magazine putting those routes up, but they’re the most rewarding. It really feels good. And I think, you know, maybe my grandkids will climb there. My daughter’s already climbing there.”
