More about Katie: I'm a dentist based in Cumbria. When I’m not pulling teeth I'm pulling on holds. From rock climbing in Laos, trekking in Norway, cycle touring round Kyrgyzstan to sitting on a cold belay ledge on the Ben, it is the spirit of adventure and friendship that drives me. My best memories are standing on the top of Mont Blanc, a summit bid for an un-climbed peak in the Indian Karakoram and long summer days in the Lake District trad climbing.
