8th Women’s Climbing Symposium Connects, Develops and Inspires

Now in its 8th year, the annual Women’s Climbing Symposium (WCS) continues to grow and inspire action.

Organised by Bouldering star Shauna Coxsey (GBR) and most recently held on October 6th at HarroWall in London, the biggest edition yet included several IFSC athletes and former athletes as key speakers and guests. Aiming to connect, develop and inspire with stories from their outdoor and competition experiences, Anna Stöhr (AUT), Caroline Ciavaldini (FRA), and Beth Rodden (USA) headlined the event. A further eight focus talks were held by women, including current Paraclimbing athlete Isabella Walsh (GBR) and former competitor Nina Williams (USA).

Participants also had the opportunity to get involved and participate in several hands-on workshops. These workshops focused on a variety of climbing-related topics, from Bouldering technique to training and yoga. Coaches included seasoned competitors Leah Crane (GBR), Petra Klingler (SUI), Gracie Martin (GBR) and Coxsey.

More information can be found on the WCS website and in Red Bull's review of the event.
