Whitney Boland’s climbing prowess exceeds her stature. She knows size does not dictate performance. She eats, sleeps and breathes sport climbing and bouldering with trad climbing not far behind. She lives and climbs in the Gunks and has recently been appointed as their new chapter head. She is training to become a more balanced climber; working on mastering new techniques that can up her onsite level. When she’s not climbing, usually you can find her working as a freelance copywriter. Need some catalog copy? Captions? Product descriptions? Look no further. If you ask her hidden talent, she’ll tell you she can do back handsprings- just like riding a bike. Now, I don’t know about you- I can ride a bike, but I definitely cannot do back handsprings.
