foxy fridays – aleks

Foxy Fridays are weekly interviews with some of the awesome lady climbers that I’ve been meeting over the past year in the NYC area as well as at other crags around the country

So even though Aleks and I lived in the same city and climbed at the same gym for about two years, I only met this BADASS woman in Red Rocks, NV this past March. I came out to Red Rocks to escape the east coast winter with a bunch of awesome climbers and our timing worked out that their friends, Aleks and Jeremy, arrived in Red Rocks at the same time (Aleks and Jeremy were on an epic climbing trip that had started in November 2013 and would continue until June 2014). Well, what can I say… Aleks and I had a “special connection”. We flirted, made innapproriate comments with each other all weekend, made everyone else uncomfortable and decided that we should obviously become friends when she got back to NY. This girl is STRONG, mentally and physically and climbing with her has made me push myself and try things I’ve always felt was beyond my level. I can’t wait for our trip to Red River Gorge this fall!
