Introducing Katerina Crocker!

Hello name is Kat, I am a Russian born mountaineer. Mostly I have climbed in remote areas of Russia, now I am trying to reach the mountains of the world.

At the age of 7 I have summited my first Peak in Winter – Greater Chimgan (3,309 m) of the Chatkal Mountain range, Uzbekistan.  Since then mountains like Belukha, Mt Blanc,Tete Blanche,  Ben Nevis and many others have been keeping me busy.

Every year in the Winter I am trying to go away to Scotland and do as much mountaineering as possible to improve my winter climbing grades. The rest of the year I enjoy trad climbing, hill walking and running.

Last year in the Alps I had a massive fall into the crevasse, being rescued by helicopter, been taken to the hospital, but that didn’t stop me from summiting Mt Blanc 2 days later. I love mountaineering, it’s a very dangerous hobby but with wise head and The knowledge I can enjoy extreme sports and carry on with my adventures.

This summer I suppose to climb Matterhorn and Eiger but recently I have found out that I am going to be a mummy J, so all high altitude climbing has to be put on hold. Instead, in August I am going away to Isle of Skye or Wales or any area of UK without a rain. Hoping to do lots of trad climbing and hill walking.

My planed trips to the Alps and Pakistan now been moved to a summer Of 2014 and 2015.

I am very pleased to be Berghaus Every Day Adventurer. Looking forward to share my big “baby bump” adventures with readers in August.
