GQ magazine just published a pretty good interview. Some very climbing specific descriptions I would imagine go way over the average reader's head...

"The crux of the route, called the Boulder Problem, is about 1,800 feet off the valley floor. There are about ten moves on it, and the holds are small and far apart. Only one of them is something you can pull down on. When everything's facing sideways, if your foot slips or if anything happens, you're shooting off the rock faceóno matter how hard you're holding on. It's what makes the Boulder Problem so tough. And then the crux of the crux involves this crazy karate kick into this corner, which requires a high degree of flexibility and precision, because you're kicking at mid-chest height way out to the side, and once your foot's over there you have to bring your hand over."
