  • I really loved my overall experience at SS and would definitely attend next year. It was a great mix of wilderness skills/activities as well as more emotional/spiritual work.

    • Summit Sisters Participant
  • The leaders were great, they taught us so much and made it easy to understand. I admit, I was nervous going to the class but everyone made me feel comfortable and I came away with a lot more knowledge about rock climbing than I thought I would. I will definitely take another course some day.

    • Intro to Climbing Participant
  • I felt totally safe the whole day, and it was a great learning environment where everyone encouraged you to take your time and get it right. Lots of practice really helped solidify the information and techniques for me, and I really liked the way we were allowed to try and never felt any pressure. Plus I felt like I made some friends in the process with all of the other students. Couldn’t suggest it more, thanks Women’s Wilderness!!
