During this episode, Spence chats with Chic Scott. Chic is the foremost authority on Canadian Mountaineering history. He spent 8 years writing his masterpiece - Pushing the Limits - which details the history of Canadian mountains and mountaineering. in 1967, he was on the team that claimed the first winter ascent of Mount Assiniboine, which is the crown jewel of the Canadian Rockies. He has climbed Mount Logan, gone on dozens of expeditions, guided in the Alps and has written numerous books including the ski touring bible of Western Canada, Summits and Icefields. Today, at age 70, he is a story-telling legend and still gets out car camping. Discussions include the story of the first winter ascent of Big A, climbing in the Alps long before it was busy, why competition is killing humanity, Chic's dislike of list and how to find yourself in the mountains.
