“Sarah not only answers the geologic questions we’ve all pondered during tedious belays, she goes a step further. She engages her audience with a blend of science, adventure and personal stories.” —Fitz Cahall, The Dirtbag Diaries
“We have some of the world’s best climbers coming through our shop with their slides hows, but Sarah’s was special. It was an interesting and refreshing perspective on the sport we all know and love — definitely one of the most original presentations we’ve had at Feathered Friends.” —Eddie Espinosa, Seattle
“Sarah, thanks for coming to both of our climbing gyms. Your slide show/book tour for Flakes, Jugs & Splitters: A Rock Climber’s Guide to Geology was very informative and well received. We keep selling out of your books and can’t wait for you to come back!” —Lary Norin, Rhode Island Rock Gym and Rock Spot Climbing
“Flakes, Jugs & Splitters is a great journey through geology, via a climber’s perspective. Sarah explains the formation of the features that, as climbers, we rely on for travel in the vertical world of rock. Her show features some amazing rock imagery and as a climber I was psyched to head for new crags and climb!” —Christian Folk, Outdoor Research, Seattle
