I got the opportunity to hang out with Ben Esposito for a couple of days at his home in Santa Monica. After a long day of designing his first PlayStation game, Ben invited me out to his local rock climbing facility to take on the challenge of keeping up with him and his friends. Holy crap, this is a challenging sport.
