Katy Whittaker supports #HerMoJo - a gentle 'nudge' to help get more women & girls, more ACTIVE!
Sheffield based Katy Whittaker is one of the UK’s top female climbers. She has excelled in a number of different climbing disciplines, from indoor competitions, to bold grit routes and hard sport routes.
She was born in Burnley, but grew up in Edale in the Peak District. Her introduction to the outdoor life came early with an abundance of family holidays focussed upon walking, scrambling and climbing.
Katy did her first lead on an indoor wall at the age of eight. She started doing BRYCCS competitions a few years later and got on to the Junior team aged 12. Now she helps you take up climbing.
