Editor’s note: Matador Ambassador Katie Lambert, along with her climbing partner and husband Ben Ditto, have spent the last several decades traveling for new climbing objectives. Last year they were part of a team that climbed Mt. Proboscis in a single day, only the second group to achieve this since 1963. The pair also explored some of the world’s best limestone in Catalonia, Spain.
After she sustained an injury and took some time off this past winter, I asked Katie to put together some thoughts on her life as professional climber.
