"In climbing, when I'm not trying to do a million things at once, all the chaos of distractions from the digital world are silent. I'm just focused on the next move!"
Since the age of 6 (1998), Sasha has captured the world's attention with her climbing abilities. By the time she was eleven, Sasha sent her first 5.13, something that had not been achieved since Chris Sharma and Adam Ondra. While still in High School, Sasha sent two of the hardest routes in the Red River Gorge, Kentucky;.Southern Smoke (5.14c) and Lucifer (5.14c). Then, in 2011, the three-time US National Champion became the first American women to climb the grade 9a (5.14d) with her historic ascent of "Pure Imagination", also located in Kentucky's Red River Gorge.
