DiGiulian and Tommy Caldwell Team up with Access Fund and Native Outdoors to discuss land management and how climbers can do a better job at interacting with Native Lands and Communities. Through the means of Backcountry Skiing, Rock Climbing, and Discussion, this episode dives into the discussion of how we can all play an active part in conservation, land management, and cultivate a healthy, sustainable ecosystem for all.
