What do you do when you are 4 pitches off the ground and your partner gets injured, you rappelled past the anchor, or the terrain is simply too hard!? Having a handful of tricks up your sleeve could make the difference between having a small misadventure or a call-for-a-rescue epic.
Katie has been climbing for over 15 years, and is in her second season of guiding with She Moves Mountains, as well as the Northwest Mountain School in Leavenworth, Washington. Her real passion for climbing exists along ragged ridges, tracing lines across the sky high in the mountains. She has a long resume of alpine routes throughout the Western United States, and Canada.
Katie knows the value of having, and being, a strong and confident partner in the mountains, especially if things go wrong. She loves teaching and geeking out over rope systems and skills!
