Montana Women’s Climbing Festival
an organic festival to create community
Big THANK YOU to our title sponsors 2021:
Big THANK YOU to our community sponsors 2021:
Build and strengthen your community around rock climbing in Montana. This event will provide the needed space for women to exchange, share and create relationships. We all have so much to share, it is time to make it happen!
Community building event in a state where everyone lives far apart from each other and rarely runs into other folks at the crags, especially women. However we have a lot of motivated and adventurous female climbers that need to be brought together. We all experience some form of disconnection in our community because of gender, race, age, social background or performance but we can overcome some of it in this festival.
This year’s festival…was incredible! Thank you so much for making this event happen.
If you feel like you have something to share with your local climbers like a story or experience or something else please send on the end of this page an email with your idea.
This year’s raffle proceeds went to the Inge Perkins Scholarship, a foundation that supports young female climbers in their journey to become a climber. Click on the logo to find out more about the scholarship.
