I am still daydreaming about it!
Elyse Sara

I took the Women’s Weekend Rock Climbing Clinic recently and am still daydreaming about it! It was the first time that I took a group climbing class and loved the energy of all the ladies. I especially enjoyed hearing the stories about our guides, as they provided motivational and inspiring words to encourage us all. We experienced a variety of climbs, and the days just flew by! Elyse

It was a safe space to move at my own speed!
Ashley Brown

I signed up for the Women’s Trad clinic to boost my confidence. I have a lapsed SPI and wanted to see just how much I remember and how safe my recreational climbing is. The clinic reinforced what I already know from the SPI, and gave me an environment that fostered my courage and confidence. I climb frequently with my husband and his peers who are all guides. In comparison to them, sometimes I feel slow and not as dialed. The Women’s Trad Clinic was a safe space to move at my own speed, test my own skills, and receive feedback in a way that felt appropriate and applicable. Overall an excellent experience, and just what I hoped for. Not to mention the group was kind and there was lots of laughter.

With a guide by your side, you’ll learn something new, stay safe on the rocks, and most importantly, have fun!

    For advanced climbers, Moab has loads of routes to spend the day on. Your guide will discuss your objectives as a group, and in two days, you’ll progress your crack climbing or multi-pitch skills with female AMGA-certified guides. Let your guides plan the weekend so you can focus on developing your skills and bond with other female participants while climbing the classic routes or best hidden gems the area has to offer.
