women's climbing weekends 2021
Following the huge success of 2020's Women's Climbing Weekends in North Wales, I am very excited to announce that there will be more dates for 2021.
3 WEEKENDS OF ROCK CLIMBING, SOLELY FOR WOMEN (or those who identify as women) IN NORTH WALES.
17th - 18th April 2021
19th - 20th June 2021
3rd - 4th July
25th - 26th Sept 2021
DUE TO POPULARITY, NEW DATES ARE NOW LIVE - BOOK NOW BELOW!
8th May - Introduction to Leading Traditional Climbing
3rd July - Beginner friendly day, for all experiences, same as the other Saturdays.
4th July- Introduction to Leading Traditional Climbing
Run by Alice Kerr Mountaineering, these weekends have been funded by the Charitable Work Funding of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors, funded itself by the Alpkit Foundation.
The Climbing Weekends cost just £20 per day to attend and present a wonderful opportunity for people to get out on the rock.
My aim is to get more women out rock climbing!
Broken into 2 halves, each weekend will be based in Snowdonia, working in small groups and have opportunities for both beginners and experienced climbers. There is a particular drive to get new mothers out climbing, whether it is a re-introduction after a break, or a new sport for you. (Please don't worry if you aren't a new mother, everyone is more than welcome!)
You can come to either day, or both! Be sure to read the information below before booking as one day may suit your experience better.
The weekends consist of:
Saturday – Relaxed, beginner friendly rock climbing. Come along and have a go at climbing outside! We will go to a venue with something for all abilities, so don’t worry if you’ve never been before. On this day, you will learn more about movement on rock, as well as some rope skills. Although they won’t be able to climb, you are very welcome to bring children along, there will be plenty of people to watch them whilst you climb! Limited to 8 people. No prior experience needed (you do not need to have climbed indoors or outdoors). Climbing kit can be supplied.
Sunday – For the slightly more experienced climber; a day of multi pitch adventure! Heading to a larger crag, we will go for a fantastic day out on some wonderful North Walian rock faces! During this day, you will learn more about multi-pitch climbing and all the techniques associated with it. You will need to apply for this to make sure you have the necessary experience (some outdoor climbing)– limited to 4 people per Sunday. Before booking, send me a short email outlining your climbing experience and why you’d like to come along to one of these days (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The weekends are filling up very quickly this coming year, so make sure you book your place with plenty of time to avoid missing out!
