Women are fantastic climbers


We have style, poise, grace, flexibility... We "climb like a girl"! Well now, we are offering you a chance to come along and join us on our women's only holidays in the Costa Blanca or Haute Provence.

By day climb on great rock, basked in warm sunshine. By night drink, eat & chat in some delicious Spanish or French bars & restaurants.


Why go on a Women Only Rock climbing course or holiday?


Women tend to climb differently to men. They generally can't rely on brute force to get them up a route! One of our female climbing instructors, Jude Spancken, has explored ways of maximising the strengths of women... flexibility, focus, creativity, inner strength, maximising her climbing potential and enjoyment.


Let her show you what she's learnt and maximise your ability. Of course an all women environment can give encouragement and like mindedness that you don't always get from our gorgeous macho males!


More about Climb Like A Girl


Sarah-Jane Dobner wrote a really nice article about Climbing Like a Girl, movement technique and the underrepresentation of women in the climbing press. Published in: Climb Magazine - July 2015.


Hazel Findlay is one of the world's top female climbers. She has climbed some of the hardest sport and trad routes and is known for her bold style. Having climbed a lot on trad gear since she was a young girl, she knows how to deal with the fear of climbing above gear. Hazel is the guest coach on the Climb with your Heroes trip from 10th-17th of October 2015. She is also a speaker on the Women's Climbing Symposium.
