Women in Skydiving

This week in our continuation of the Women in Climbing series, we have a VERY special guest, Jan. Jan has been skydiving and base jumping since the 70’s/80’s. She is the COOLEST.

In this interview, we discuss the diving community and how it and women’s representation in it has changed over time. See Jan base jump off of El Cap in ‘80:

      1. I’m from Texas, and it reminds me of the joke we had in Colorado ~ When you see a Ford Explorer rented by a Texan in Colorado smashed at the bottom of a 600 foot drop-off, what’s the last thing you hear when they hit play on the Black Box? “Watch THIS!”
