If you’re not a bouldering nerd, there’s a fair chance you don’t know who the Massachussetsan is. Pro tip: change that.

Give Katie Lamb a follow and you’ll quickly discover the 24-year-old is far from your average pebble wrestler.

Lamb, 24, is a data scientist with a quick and refreshingly offbeat wit and her own personal tailor — along with being a madly strong boulderer.

How she finds time for it all — and how she manages to be so much better at bouldering than most of us — is beyond me.

But as any scientist knows, observation is the root of knowledge. So check out this installment of “Katie Lamb’s Book Club” and study her method on V14 in Rocklands, South Africa. When Lamb’s at the controls, you never know when you’re about to learn something new.
