“No one is thinking about you. They're thinking about themselves, just like you.” Unfortunately, this doesn’t always apply in the climbing world. Our third myth is slightly different, in that it isn’t a myth. To be truthful, people are watching you, but it doesn't mean it's a bad...Read More
Guest writer Lorna Potter, founder of Bristol Women Climbers, discusses her insights and suggestions in the set up of a women’s climbing group.
Women’s climbing groups are are a great way to empower women and create a community for women to come together and build friendships around their love for climbing.
I’m Lorna and I run Bristol Women Climbers (BWC), a group for women climbers in Bristol to get to know other local female climbers, make friends, have fun, share skills and inspire each other to climb harder.
Women's Sport Week is slowly creeping up on us and it is a great opportunity to access one of the many events and courses designed especially for you! If you love the indoors but are feeling less confident about moving onto outdoor rock, look no further!...Read More

I recently had an email from a man called Jin, inviting us to Kilnworx Climbing Centre in Stoke for their new Women’s Club. We were very excited and went along to see what they have to offer at their inaugural Women’s Club Night. Here’s what we found out:
Kilnworx is a Social Enterprise. What this means is that it’s essentially not for profit.
It has a great feel and we could see from talking to Jin and the other staff and volunteers that they have big ideas for this place and they’re passionate about it.
It’s set in a church and some of the features (which you won’t be able to see yet, as it’s still under construction) are truly magnificent.
We're having a social night in Manchester for any climbers, women and men, who'd like to do something social outside the wall. You are welcome to join us in Manchester's groovy Northern Quarter for a drink and socialise. It's a chance to meet new people,...Read More
