Sasha DiGiulian rock climbing

Sasha DiGiulian's passion for climbing began at the age of 6, when she discovered a climbing wall at her local gym. From that moment, she was captivated by the exciting world of rock climbing. DiGiulian's climbing journey accelerated rapidly as she began competing less than a year later, at age 7. 

DiGiulian has conquered some of the world's most demanding routes, and has earned recognition in many of the top rock climbing competitions worldwide. She became the first woman to climb the Magic Mushroom, one of the most challenging routes of the Eiger in the Swiss Alps in 2015. She won gold medals at the Pan-American games in Ecuador (2010) and Venezuela (2012), as well as the gold medal for female overall at the IFSC World Championships in Arco, Italy. DiGiulian's dedication to her craft, strong work ethic, and mental fortitude have propelled her to the top of the climbing world.

DiGiulian produced a film about her climb of the three Canadian Rocky Mountain big walls in a single season, and is an advocate for women and girls in rock climbing. Her story inspires young climbers to embrace their passion fully and reminds them that with hard work, perseverance, and a positive mindset, they can overcome any obstacle and achieve great heights.

Whether you want your kids to develop a passion for climbing while they're young, or you're just looking for a fun activity to help them build strength and balance, a climbing wall for kids may be the perfect addition to your home! Get your kids climbing today!
