Boulder Women.

Boulder Women is a meet up group for girls and women who are keen to connect and boulder together, be inspired by each other and feel comfortable in the climbing gym. We are committed to providing opportunities for our young girls and women to get active, boost confidence, participate and enjoy the amazing sport of climbing (bouldering).
If you’re new to climbing, and not sure where to start, this group is a perfect way to meet other boulder-centric awesome girls & women! And if you’re experienced, we would love to meet you, climb with you, make new connections and encourage the new climbers on the wall.


Weekly meetup
