Anonymous asked: Sierra, I have been following you for some time. You are very inspirational. In fact, you have interested me in the sport of climbing. For a 32yr athletic person, how would you suggest I get into climbing?

I am glad that you are interested in climbing :)

Stop by your local climbing gym and check it out.  They often have classes/private instruction for beginners as well.  If you like it, get a membership and get climbing! :)

Anonymous asked: how many pull ups can you do?

The most I have done in a row was 25

Anonymous asked: Why does it sound like some people are calling you "weed" in your videos? Is it a nickname of sorts?

Yes! When I was little I grew like a weed (really quickly), so that is the origin of the nickname :)

Anonymous asked: What do you think was the biggest factor for you in moving from climbing 5.12 to 5.13? I'm finding i'm stumped beyond 5.12b, and i'm unsure what the next step is in my training to progress into the 5.12c/d range and eventually 5.13 and beyond.

Mixing up your training could help move from 5.12b to 5.12c/d and on.  Try climbing a lot of routes at 5.12b and below so you have a solid base.  During this time it will be helpful to climb routes 5.12c/d and above to work on harder moves.

Good luck :)

jlotto asked: Hey Sierra I'm a huge fan! What is your favorite outdoor climb for the beauty around the area? and what is your favorite memory from your climbing career?

The Rally is my favorite outdoor climb for the beauty of the area, Maui is incredible.

My favorite memory of my climbing career is when I made finals for the first time at a professional competition, I was ecstatic.

Anonymous asked: what famous person do you admire most (outside of climbing)?

Katy Perry.  She seems like such a strong & confident woman.

Anonymous asked: Hi Sierra. At what age should I start my kids climbing? Is there an age you would recommend? We love following you ( OK I Do) Lol. I have my youngest boy at 5 y/o and daughter 15. And one last question, can YOU teach them? :)

Children can begin climbing at any age!  5 & 15 are both good ages.  I can teach them, just send me an e-mail at sierrabc.climbing@gmail.com :)

Anonymous asked: Can we be unicorn loving friends? When you were a child, did you ever try to put a cone on your head and run around? Or was i the only one?

I am sure I did, I still think unicorns rule.  If I had a horse I would dress them as a unicorn for Halloween. 

Anonymous asked: How can I improve on slopers? They are the weak point in my climbing :(

Force yourself to climb routes/problems that include mainly slopers.  You can also make up routes/problems on your own :)

Anonymous asked: Would you wear one of our climbing shirts for us?! :)
