Words with Sasha DiGiulian:

I have been climbing since I was seven years old. On average I train 2-3 hours each day, five days a week. I have traveled to over 15 countries to pursue my sport, both for competitions and to climb outside.

Every year, my climbing has progressed to new levels and I challenge myself with new goals.

Since a young age I have balanced my climbing life with my school life. This balance has taught me valuable time management skills. I have also learned a lot about the successes that hard work yields, and the necessity for determination and passion. I see myself living out my passion for climbing for the rest of my life.
