Shelma Jun founded the Women's Climbing Festival one year ago. She didn't really know what would come of it, but when the event sold out in 24 hours and 200 women showed up from all around the country, she knew this was something women were looking for. Now, she's gearing up for round two.
For one weekend, hundreds of women will gather for the second annual Women's Climbing Festival in Bishop, California. There will be clinics, demos, speeches from pros, and a lot of climbing. The main goal fo the festival is to help connect female climbers, but you don't even have to be a climber to attend.
Have you ever thought about getting into climbing? You should go to this festival. Have you started climbing but can't find partners? You should go to this festival. Have you had trouble meeting women climbers in your town? You should go to this festival.
I know I'm going (and I think we need a festival like this for skiers, too).
The event is March 3-5, 2017. Get yours.
