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.
