    The trilogy

    Tommy Joyce (2018)

    On July 12, 2018, Professional Climber, Sasha DiGiulian, set out to become the first woman and second person in history to complete 'Rocky Mountain Trilogy'; a compilation of three of the hardest 5.14 big walls in the Canadian Rockies. The imposing climbs, on Castle Mountain, Mount Louis, and Mount Yamnuska, respectively will take Sasha 2 months of continued effort with the ultimate goal of ascending each sheer wall in a single day push, with zero falls — a combined average of over 9,000 vertical feet of climbing at a lung busting average elevation of 7,000ft.

    Rolihlahla

    Keith Ladzinski (2014)

    In the summer of 2013, Sasha DiGiulian climbed Rolihlahla (5.14c) in South Africa. The climb is considered the hardest route at Waterfall Boven, one of South Africa’s sport climbing destinations. The line was formally dubbed the Overlord Project when it was bolted in 2008 by South African climber Andrew Pedley. Rolihlahla is Nelson Mandela’s birth name, and colloquially means troublemaker.

    Superior Ice Climbing

    Keith Ladzinski (2018)

    Angela VanWiemeersch and Sasha DiGiliuan, two athletes at the top of their respective climbing disciplines, explore the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in search for new ice climbing routes on the shoreline of Lake Superior. Frozen waterfalls on the side of massive sandstone cliffs in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore offer a variety of climbing possibilities that only a small, but dedicated community regularly visits. Ice climbing in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is relatively unknown, but the climate, landscape, and geological features make it home to some of the USA’s best. The waterfalls freeze into spectacular ice formations, creating countless climbing routes.

    Break on Through

    Matty Hong (2017)

    In high-end modern rock climbing, 5.15 is the top of the difficulty scale, a grade achieved by only a few men and never by a woman. Margo Hayes, a little known 19-year-old from Boulder, Colorado, is determined to change that. To be closer to the world’s hardest routes, she has moved to Europe, where she trains and climbs with the goal of succeeding on two of the most iconic 5.15s in France and Spain. But pushing her body and mind to the absolute limit, she risks injury and failure in her quest to be the first.
