You can usually find Kathy Karlo outside, probably scrambling up some obscure rock or shoving herself in a wide, chossy crack. She lives for rock climbing, brown dog snugs, belly laughs, sharing doughnuts with strangers, positive vibes, spontaneity, van-dwelling, and unplanned adventures. Her love of rock and ice has been a life-changing experience and she encourages anyone and everyone to try it. Kathy believes that climbing a rock is so much more than that…it’s a life journey that forever tests the limits of possibility. She is the author of the blog For the Love of Climbing and a freelance writer, bouncing back and forth between Boulder, CO and Brooklyn, NY. Between baking and loving on dogs, she is desperately trying not to kill the last few living basil plants in her apartment.
