Interview: Kyle Walker Discusses His Second Flatiron Fall and the Controversy That Followed

On April 16, 2019, Kyle Walker fell while free soloing North Crack (5.9+) on the Second Flatiron above Boulder, Colorado. His injuries were extensive. Among other things, he broke his pelvis, eight of his ribs, and his wrists, and suffered a traumatic brain injury. GoPro footage of the event went viral, inciting a wave of criticism from the climbing community. In response, Walker lashed out. Now, over a year after his accident, Walker wants to clear the air. He reached out to Climbing to tell his story after listening to our interview with Anton Krupicka, who discovered him after the fall and called for rescue.
