Actually, my wife would rather be free climbing and was into ballet and gymnastics when she was young; she is amazing to watch on routes that go free at our ability. In fact she gets to lead all the really hard pitches! Recently direct aid climbing has caught her fancy, and she has kept up with the guys on the team in everyway except one, she is better at climbing than most of us!
