Find a ladies night at a wall near you

Posted by Joanna Rowbottom on 15/06/2016

Many walls have regular sessions where women can meet up to climb with other women. These are either organised by the wall itself or an individual. The climbing wall remains open to all climbers during these times but runs clubs or sessions specifically for women to climb together, perfect for those looking for climbing partners and some climbing tips.

Of course, women's only sessions aren't to everybody's taste but if you want to find out more of the benefits of women's sessions and clubs read this blog post 'who needs a women's club' on the WomenClimb website.

We've mapped the ladies climbing sessions we know of. If you'd like to attend we suggest getting in touch with the venue for more information.

Ladies: It's time to volunteer for the BMC

Ladies, we need you! Our statistics show that fewer women are involved in BMC activities than men, from participation through to BMC board members. We’d like to have more female representation across all areas, especially as volunteers in our voluntary committees and technical working groups. Whatever time you have, and wherever your interests lie, it would be really great to have you on board.

Meet Lynn Robinson – the new BMC president

Let’s meet this amazing, selfless person!
