The main skills we will teach throughout the day are: rappelling, sport climbing anchors, and cleaning anchors. This clinic is less about climbing and more about learning useful skills needed when climbing outdoors.
We will make use of anchors boards to safely teach how to build and clean an anchor on the ground. Time permitting, we will provide each climber the opportunity to clean an anchor and rappel, with guide-supervision.

The majority of women come to our clinics alone - somewhere around 95%. If you are hesitating to join because you would be coming solo, please know that we expect a majority of our participants to be joining by themselves, seeking community.
We generally have a wide range of ages at our retreats. The average tends to fall anywhere between the ages of 26 to 45. But we have had quite a few women in their 60's join as well. It really is up to the attitude and physical ability of the participant.
We have a very strict cancellation policy. Please review it before committing to this retreat.
We want everyone who wants to attend one of our events to have the opportunity to come. Regardless of their financial status.
That's why we created a Pay What You Can option for people who can't afford it or find the cost to be inhibitive. The process is simple and trust based. We believe in the integrity of our participants and we aren't here to judge anyone's financial situation.
We ask that possible participants ask themselves these two questions before taking us up on this option:
From there, we have created discount codes in varying amounts to use at checkout so climbers can attend for as little as $40. Please use them if you need them but we kindly request that participants only use these codes if they NEED the financial assistance to attend so that we can continue this program for years to come. At the moment it is being funded by small donations from past participants and She Moves Mountains' owner Lizzy VanPatten. These codes are not intended to make your vacation cheaper but rather to provide opportunities to those who could not otherwise afford attendance.
Use these codes at checkout to apply the scholarship:
