The interview was conducted at the recent Sheffield Adventure Film Festival where Simpson served as Patron. In the first part of the interview Joe talked about selling his story to Hollywood, five times no less, and having Tom Cruise playing him in a movie, which thankfully never came to pass. This time out he talks a bit more about climbing and the risks involved with the sport that nearly cost him his life, but has also made him a household name. He also mentions the number of feet he has actually fallen in his endeavors. It’s a staggering number by the way. Good stuff.
Thanks to Outdoors Magic for the heads up on this one once again.
