People you wish you climbed with: Sasha DiGiulian

Sasha DiGiulian goes where few men have gone before – literally. Ask her how and why on Reddit!
By Josh Sampiero

On Monday, May 19th, Sasha DiGiulian did AMA ('Ask Me Anything') on the social news-sharing site Reddit. Even though she's done answering questions, you can find the conversation here – there's a bunch to learn about Sasha, and climbing in general!

To offer a little something extra to Sasha's AMA, we tried to be a GGG and so we threw together this photo gallery of some Sasha shots for your discussion and viewing pleasure.

Whether it's in the gym or on the rock, it's clear this girl can send, so thanks for sending in your questions!  Enjoy – and thanks for keeping it light on the tipping of fedoras.
