Beta Magazine


Beta Magazine is an online climbing and outdoors magazine aimed at women but inclusive of all. Our vision is to encourage conversation and thinking around themes in climbing and the outdoors. We want to learn from what our contributors have to say, the stories and experiences they have to share. We aim to do this through diverse, colourful and engaging content; whether that be through articles, stories, poetry, photography, illustration, digital and graphic design.

Who are we? 

Co-Founders and Co-Editors Annie Martin and Emily Ankers are both rock climbers, one from the South of England, one from the North. 

Annie is a film maker and co-founder of the Bouldering DabRats platform. Her work aims to normalise the presence of women and under-represented groups in the media by being seen and heard, whether laughing, crying or power screaming!

Emily is a researcher specialising in ‘everyday’ women’s experiences of rock climbing. This research has informed the need for greater visibility, more diverse and accurate representations of women in the climbing and outdoor world.

Our design is led by Catherine Evans. Catherine is the founder of Lacuna Creative Design and the designer of Beta. Catherine has been designing professionally for 5 years, working for various companies before starting up her own design agency.
