Hey! I’m Katy Brayman (she/her). I was born and raised in Rhode Island and began climbing there when I was 17. I predominately climbed inside for three years before transitioning to climbing outside. Nowadays, I spend most of my time bouldering while living on the road in my Toyota Tundra with my pup Timber.
Typically you can find me hanging out in Boone, North Carolina, Flagstaff, Arizona, or Las Vegas, Nevada. My proudest ascent to date is ‘Prince of Thieves‘ (V11) in Joe’s Valley, Utah; another spot that I frequent. I spend my summer months back in Rhode Island teaching kids to surf and recovering from the winter bouldering season. Along with being a Flashed Athlete, I am also a member of the Flashed Install Team!
My favorite Flashed product is the Drifter Pad!
