Originally from Olympia, Washington, Whitney is one half of the climbing duo @truckbedboulderers with her long-time partner Ben Firth. In this episode we talk her training regime, periods, coaching kids, Whit's recent experience with a nutritional coach, how nice it is to be told to eat more, and talk just a little, tiny bit about crying. We also enjoy a little mansplainin’…!!!
