Ladycrusher (n): a strong, stoked, and independent female climber

Hi, my name is Katy and I like to climb. A lot.

Sport, boulders, plastic, trad……basically whatever I can get my hands on.

My boyfriend introduced me to the sport in spring of 2015, and I was quickly addicted to tying in, chalking up, and the physical and mental success (and defeat) that come with the sport. However, it wasn’t until I started climbing with other women that I learned more about my own potential as a climber and what it meant to truly try hard. More than that, they became my community of inspiring and supportive ladycrushers.

I started this blog as a creative outlet, as a place I could share my obsessive crush on climbing and adventuring in the outdoors with others who may feel similarly. My hope is for this blog to become a vehicle for connecting and inspiring other ladycrushers out there!
