Some pretty great stuff this week. First, and most importantly, there’s a blog you absolutely need to check out: Avate Athlete Alyse Dietel’s blog, SeeLyseeClimb. It’s awesome. This in particular— A Step-By-Step Guide to Picking up Climber Chicks in the Gym. Alyse is going to be contributing to this blog in the future, and we’re super excited to have her on board.
Vice Sports put up a profile on Ashima Shiraishi. Pretty great video, definitely cool to see a little bit more about the mentality behind prodigious climbing.
Elaine Elliott at Crux Crush wrote this post on “Battling Gender Stereotypes in Climbing”. Quick, easy read with some interesting thoughts.
