What do you do when you’re not climbing? 

Aleksa: When we’re not climbing, we can be found hiking, park hopping, biking, occasionally Geo-Caching or running. Aleksa, Anora and Ember also enjoy participating in karate 3 to 4 times a week.

Which do you prefer: top rope, lead, or bouldering?

Aleksa: Top rope and bouldering have been top on our list so far.
