Anonymous asked: Say you end up filthy rich (win the lotto or something) what do you do with your life and the money?
I would travel a lot, build a climbing gym, and donate to various charities.
Anonymous asked: Last movie you saw in theaters? And is there one you are really wanting to see that's coming out?
I really want to see Frozen.
Anonymous asked: When you're climbing with others in a group, do you help each other out, vocally--by telling them where to put their foot if they're unsure, or encouraging them otherwise? I've seen this a lot in gyms, and it seems relatively distracting.
When I’m climbing in a group we always help each other out! It isn’t too hard to give beta and not be distracting, you just have to be helpful :)
Anonymous asked: Any advice on seeking out sponsors? :) I'm a fellow female climber, who climbs 12a/ V5 (recently got into bouldering) and I've only done one local gym comp four years in a row and placed 1st twice and 2nd twice, so I'm not exactly in the advanced/elite category quite yet.
Reach out to some local companies and tell them about yourself! Companies are looking for people who are good ambassadors for their products. Send some e-mails talking about your accomplishments, goals, and how you will promote their products :)

Anonymous asked: When you go to a gym do you have any training regimen you follow? My girlfriend and I go to a gym here in Seattle (Seattle Bouldering Project) pretty much every other day, but aside from warming up, starting on easy climbs, then working on harder stuff we have no real training system. Also, how does one start to campus (as in hands only, work up a campus wall)?
My training plan is changing, but the basic way it works is a 20-30 minute climbing warm up, 5-10 minute rest, then I begin my workout. I love climbing volume (40-50 problems) and doing sessions on harder problems.
If you begin campusing, pay attention to how your fingers feel, don’t overdo it! Also, always be completely warmed up before beginning a campusing workout. Try throwing in campusing once or twice a week, campus up and down for 3-4 rounds, and see how you feel. You can adjust your campusing workouts from that point.
archaeologicallunch asked: Hi Sierra, I travel a lot for work and can't get into the climbing gym as often as I'd like. I was wondering if you knew of any good workouts I could do so I can maintain my climbing condition? Thanks!
I really like full body workouts, as well as exercises that focus on climbing specific moves, ex) pull ups. Anything that works agility is great as well.
