The granite here is slated in such a way that the ubiquitous roofs look like they’ve been constructed from stacked up Lego blocks. The hold-potential of those...

Women in Mountain Rescue: Becky Isles

Womenclimb want to encourage more women to see Mountain Rescue as something they can get involved in, as despite an increase in women in MR in the last 15 years they still represent less than 20% of team members.

I met up with Becky in a little cafe in Sowerby Bridge and over a brew we chatted about our experiences in Mountain Rescue, why she got involved and how she manages to fit it around her career working as an A&E Registrar.

Women in Mountain Rescue: Carina Humberstone

Womenclimb recognises the importance that Mountain Rescue volunteers play in ensuring that climbers and hillwalkers are educated and safe when enjoying the outdoors.  Womenclimb want to encourage more interested women to see Mountain Rescue as something they can get involved in.

Today we catch up with Carina Humberstone, from Buxton MRT to chat how she got involved in Mountain Rescue and teaching water rescue skills.

Vertical Chill Ice Climbing // Manchester // Review

I am super excited about an upcoming trip to Norway when I’ll get to up my game from Scottish Winter Mountaineering and get out on easy water ice for the first time. I’m lucky to live not too far away from Vertical Chill Ice Wall in Manchester, so I headed over to learn the techniques needed for climbing ice and get some tips for the extra gear I might need.

Vertical Chill

Training course // Mindfulness 8-week programme

What is the training? This is an 8 week mindfulness training programme specifically designed for climbers (although non-climbers welcome!). It follows a mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) and mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) hybrid.   But what IS mindfulness? Mindfulness is a simple form of meditation that helps us develop...

Mountain Rescue Services are staffed by volunteers. Stay safe in the hills using their download as a guide.  Read on to go to the download…

Winter is here.

Here’s essential information from Mountain Rescue England & Wales about how to stay safe in during winter.

Yoga Studio app// review

UPDATE:  In light of changes to the Yoga Studio App, please be aware that the app is no longer a one-time purchase app and operates on a subscription model.  Previous purchasers of the app have paid for the app and subsequently had their access revoked, subject to paying a monthly subscription.

We can no longer recommend the app on the basis that the fundamental basis of our original review has changed. Please see comments below, from customers.

Ever thought about taking up yoga as a way of improving your flexibility and core strength, but can’t seem to get yourself to a class? There’s loads of free yoga apps on the market for smart phones so we’ve reviewed Yoga Studio to see if paying for a yoga app is really worth it.

Get Outdoors! Women Climb Profiles

During June, as part of our Get Outdoors Series, Women Climb will be profiling some of the amazing women who work in Britain’s Outdoor Industries, specifically as climbing instructors and guides. Women are underrepresented in the industry so, with this series we want to show that there are women out there with years of experience and buckets of skills and qualifications who make a living doing what they love. If you’re looking for a guide for your next adventure or, just want some inspiration to follow your own dreams of making working in the outdoors, this series might be just what you need!

Our first ‘Get Outdoors’ Profile is the wonderful Lou Stone who is a hill walking guide and rock climbing instructor based in Brighton.

Wow, you just did something really great!!

Thank you.  Your donation will help Womenclimb to continue to grow and thrive.  We rely on our beautiful and wonderful community of climbers to keep going.   Give yourself a massive pat on the back and feel proud of your support. Well done you! Where would you...
