Sasha DiGiulian speaks to her plan of enrolling at Columbia this fall in a lengthy piece on her in The Washington Post:
“Most of my competitors, in the World Cup circuit especially, are just climbing,” DiGiulian adds. “But I decided to go back to school. Because I know that, in the long term, I can’t be a climber forever.”
The whole piece is well worth reading as you can get a good feel for the level of success DiGiulian has achieved in a rather short period of time. While DiGiulian has always been a talented climber, remember that even two years ago she had done “only” one 5.141. What’s she’s done in the interim both in competitions and on real rock has been well documented, and her success seems well-deserved.
