A rock climber in her own league: Angie Scarth-Johnson

At age 7 Australian rock climbing sensation Angie Scarth-Johnson was already climbing grades that other rock climbers spend years and years to figure out. Now the 16 year old rock climbing sensation is already in a league of her own and eying to represent Australia in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics. On this episode Angie shares her path to discovering her passion and her latest endeavours including the launch of her film ‘Pacific lines’ that was two years in the making and follows her on an adventure to a remote island in the south pacific where she creates a new climbing route and connects with her heritage. This Episode of Talking Australia is hosted by Justin Walker (Editor Australian Geographic Adventure) and produced by Ben Kanthak (www.beachshackpodcasts.com).
