Hot Stuff

Hot Stuff

Name-dropping.  Bland finger food. Talking about the weather.  Social gatherings can be such a yawner.

Ashley Woods

Ashley Woods - Head Rocker

Ashley started climbing with her family when she was six, and while some teenagers might look forward to getting their first car when they turn 16, she was delighted to receive her dad’s climbing gear. Since then, her love for the sport has been a driving force in her life.

Ashley is an AMGA-trained climbing guide, a member of the Colorado Women’s Bouldering team, and a co-founder and program director of The Spot Bouldering Gym. She has completed numerous technical alpine ascents around the world, and broke the world record for the longest “dyno” (the act of dynamically leaping to a hold) on her way to a second place finish in the 2005 World Cup competition. A Women’s Wilderness staff member since 2002, Ashley is a truly incredible teacher who loves sharing her passion for climbing with other women.
