Women’s Climbing Events: Connect, Learn and Crush

And lastly but certainly the most exciting for me, are the women’s climbing events planned by some amazing and inspired women.  These meetups are suitable for all experience and skill levels.

What is ladies-ONLY night?

We close the gym early and let the ladies-ONLY night begin! It is an evening dedicated to girl/women climbers who want to climb, train, and share beta with each other! Ladies-ONLY night is for climbers of all abilities!

This is a monthly event, learning sessions are full this month but it helps if you book ahead next time 😉
