Sterling rope and Whitney Boland!!

In this video Whitney Boland talks about her life in Chattanooga, her relationship with a chronic disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) as well as her relationship to climbing. For many people climbing is a form of therapy for Whitney that has taken on a whole new meaning.

She has been published in Rock and Ice magazine and numerous other print and on-line publications such as Women’s Health, Aspen magazine, Climbing magazine and Rocky Mountain Sports just to name a few.
