Natalie discovered climbing at the age of nine and it quickly took over her life. Having joined the Glasgow Climbing Centre kid’s club she soon progressed into competition climbing where following numerous comp wins she was asked to join the GB Youth Climbing Team (aged 11). This gave Natalie the opportunity to compete at an international level all over the world, culminating in a win at the European Youth Series in Slovenia in 2007.

Natalie became increasingly drawn outdoors and started sport climbing intensively at age 18. This took her on numerous trips to top sport destinations across Europe including Céüse, Siurana and Gorges du Loup.

Now aged 27, Natalie continues to push her climbing by focussing on sport, bouldering, trad and alpine ambitions. She placed 3rd in the 2018 British Bouldering Championships, gaining her a place on the 2019 GB Bouldering Team.

Aside from climbing Natalie graduated from Edinburgh University in 2014 with an honours degree in French and German.

Natalie is also Editor-in-Chief of UKClimbing.com
