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.
