Take 5 with Sasha DiGuilian


We took five minutes with world-renowned climber Sasha DiGiulian in Boulder, Colorado, where she welcomed us into her home and personal climbing gym, affectionately named the Digi (for “DiGiulian”) Dojo. Going on 15 years as a professional climber, Sasha discusses switching her focus from rock climbing events to big, outdoor expeditions, how she developed her love for creative writing, and becoming skilled at knowing when to push ahead versus when to take a step back.

‘Taking 5’ is an all-new video series profiling athletes redefining what it means to be a woman in sport.
