Sasha Digiulian is back in what seems to be her favourite climbing area, Kentucky's Red River Gorge. Last time around, in March this year, she redpointed two 8c+'s and onsighted an 8b+, now she is back for more.

When not watching horse races, she attempted Jonathan Siegrist's Pure Imagination at the impressive Chocolate factory. A crag that's also home to RRG's first 9a, Golden ticket.

Success came quickly and she became the 2nd (possibly 3rd) woman, after Josune Bereziartu, to climb a 9a.
Sasha needed six tries spread over three days.

I will try to get a comment from her as soon as possible.
