Mo Beck

Elite climber Mo Beck shares her struggles and breakthroughs in Training, Nutrition, Tactics, and Mental Game. 


As a competitive climber, Mo has won 9 national titles, a gold medal at the 2014 Paraclimbing World Championships in Spain, and defended that title with a gold medal at the 2016 World Championships in Paris. Mo became world famous as the subject of the  Cedar Wright film Stumped which documented her journey to send 12a with half the hands most climbers use. Mo was also named a 2019 National Geographic explorer of the year after completing an expedition to the Cirque of the Unclimbibles. This conversation is full of struggle, stoke, laughs, and a ton of actionable takeaways, regardless of how many hands you have.
