Rock Climbing: The Next Great American Pastime?

The Washington Post’s lifestyle magazine this weekend had a great feature on Sasha DiGiulian, 19-year-old climbing prodigy and native of Alexandria, VA. Rock climbing has been my favorite sport and hobby for several years now, so it was a real pleasure to take in the photos and stories in this piece.

At my rock gym in Los Angeles, we decorate the walls with posters of DiGiulian and other great climbers doing their thing in Mad Rock-brand climbing gear. When I’m home, I sometimes work birthday parties and other group climbing events that come in to the gym.

Check out the WaPo piece. For more stuff like it — and stuff not like it, like politics — follow me on Twitter and Facebook.
