About the Event

Women's Climbing Weekends have a wonderfully simple aim : to get more women out rock climbing! They are social and inclusive weekends for anyone who identifies as a women to come along and climb, chat, eat, camp and learn

This weekends and course is for anyone who would like to try rock climbing outside! You are welcome to come if you have never been climbing; any experience level is welcomed. We will spend 3 days at different rock climbing venues; climbing, chatting, getting some movement coaching, learning a bit about how to be independent climbing, eating and socialising. The course is open for just 14 women, so it is a small and inclusive course. 

Accommodation at the wonderful  CRASHPAD LODGE is included for Friday (4pm onwards), Saturday and Sunday night in the cost of the course.  An Off-Grid, Eco Lodge, this is an amazing spot, tucked in at the bottom of Snowdon. The whole course will be run from here and the evenings will give plenty of time for socialising, eating, and relaxing in between days of climbing. Access to the Lodge is by car until ~1km from the Lodge, after which you park and the rest of the way is on foot or in a sturdy 4 x 4 vehicle. Click on the Lodge name above to see full details about the accommodation.  More information about the logistics will be sent out closer to the date of the course. 

Content we will cover on the Climbing Course:

- Guide books - where to go and how to find your routes

- Climbing Kit - Harnesses etc - What do we need and how does it work?

- Confidence in yourself

- Movement coaching

- Sport and Trad climbing - what's the difference?

- 'Rigging' a climb (taking a rope and putting it up so you and others can climb a route)

The course is run at a 1:7 ratio! So you get plenty of instructor time.

Things to have for accommodation:

- Food you would like for breakfasts and packed lunches on Saturday, Sunday and Monday

- Food for your dinners in the Lodge - there is a self catering kitchen for you to cook in. I will make a Whatsapp group beforehand so that people can liase about food if they would like to.

These coures are designed to be relaxing and informative.
