    When Marie Uri first got in to climbing, there were very few women who looked like her, neither her size nor her colour. Marie has type 2 diabetes, is neurodiverse and describes herself as being ‘a generous body type person’. Raised in Guadeloupe before moving to the suburbs of Paris to finish her schooling, Marie’s passion for languages ultimately brought her to London, where she joined the Marylebone Mountaineering Club. She was so engrossed in learning how to climb that it did not occur to her to question whether climbing was for her. Instead, she just indulged herself in the places, the movement, the people. Marie is simply in love with trad climbing and now mentors other women at the start of their journeys.

    London-based, proud Mum Chelle Nevill has struggled with her mental health over the years. It wasn’t until she discovered climbing, when she really started to make lasting progress. Chelle was diagnosed with depression in 2009 and says, “I have always done my best to try and be strong and overcome my own obstacles, but it wasn't until I found climbing that I started to really make progress that was lasting and didn't feel like a mask for my issues, but more of a tool-box that gave me what I needed to better understand myself.” We chat about Womens Trad festival and her dream of one day climbing a Yosemite big wall.
