Talking to Martin Panton of Marmot, Katy said:
"It is a well nice route, and I have wanted to do it ever since I saw it years ago..."
Katy has amassed quite a gritstone ticklist, with ascents of several hard routes. Recently she has headpointed (after top-rope practise) Master's Edge (E7 6b), Kaluza Klein (E7 6c) and now Braille Trail (E7 6c). She has also flashed (climbing first go without top-rope inspection) Nosferatu (E6 6b).
Away from the Grit, Katy has climbed the F8a Out of my tree at Raven Tor as well as routes of up to F8a in Europe.
Katy was the 2007 British Bouldering Champion.
