An Interview with Adventurer Rob Frost
Adventurer, photographer and filmmaker Rob Frost talks with WSCS-FM host Jean Goldsborough about his transformation from English major into heroic rock climber and professional filmmaker in a podcast recorded in March 2007. They discuss infamous rock-climbing routes around the world, with Frost candidly describing his enviable lifestyle of adventure, travel photography and filming. Listen to the interview.
Frost, who is the son of Colby-Sawyer alumna Anne McCombe Frost '59, visited the college last spring to present two of his films about his rock-climbing adventures. "Uncommon Ground" was filmed over the course of two years and celebrates the variety of climbing in the Northeastern United States. It depicts the journeys of one of the region's most prolific climbers on some incredible first ascents.
The other film, "Harvest Moon," documents a 2004 first ascent on the inhospitable north face of Thalay Sagar (23,000 feet) in the Garwhal Himalaya of northern India, near the headwaters of the holy Ganges River. Frost teamed up with a Swiss team that spent one month pushing a new route up one of the Himalayas' most feared alpine big walls.
