WCS 2016 // Review // The Talks!

It’s hard to imagine the team at Women’s Climbing Symposium could improve their events from the previous years but we think they did just that. WCS 2016 saw 400 women from all over the country (and around the world too!) gather together to hear motivating and informative talks, learn some invaluable skills in workshops and network with like-minded super psyched people.

As always it was a star studded event with headline speakers Lisa Rands, Jo Pavey and WCS’s very own Shauna Coxsey, not to mention the plethora of high end climbing crushers like Leah Crane, Mina Leslie Wyjastyk and Suz Dudikn, to name but a few! This year there was theme of goals and so it was great that some of the speakers included women that pushed the boundaries of societal expectations and choose their own paths in life, among them outdoor leader Libby peter, nutritionist Rebecca Dent and entrepreneur Rachael Briggs.

Our very own Zoe gives us a taste of what some of the talks were like…

WCS Meetup // Friday 16. Oct 6.30-9pm

Women's Climbing Symposium 2015 is fast approaching.  On Friday night we at Womenclimb are running a meetup at The Climbing Works.  If you're coming to WCS on your own then this is a great opportunity to meet others who will be there on Saturday.  This will be a friendly meetup where you can have a boulder if you fancy, or just stay for a cuppa and meet others who are going on Saturday.  If you've never been to The Works this is a great chance to familiarise yourself with the place prior to Saturday's event.

What is the women’s climbing symposium?

Sign up now for the UK's best climbing event just for women designed to bring together everyday women who climb with the UK’s top female climbing professionals  - coaches, nutritionists, celebrities, physiotherapists, trainers, speakers, and much more.  Saturday September 27th sees the return of the now annual Women’s Climbing Symposium.  The first event was in 2011 and each year it travels to a different venue around the UK – The climbing Hangar in Liverpool, The Arch in London and, this year, The Climbing Academy in Glasgow.  Essentially it’s about sharing the passion and the love of climbing, whether you’re just starting out climbing or an old hand.
