Sasha DiGiulian recently became the third woman to climb 5.14d, with her ascent of Pure Imagination in Kentucky’s Red River Gorge. After going in with expectations of a long process of learning and linking moves, Sasha was surprised to get the route on her 6th attempt, on just the third day into the project. You can check out Sasha’s blog for more details.
