Our aim is to positively impact people's climbing with activities that connect, develop and inspire.
Each year we embrace the global climbing community, sourcing speakers and coaches from all backgrounds to nurture innovation and ensure the event is diverse, interesting and exciting.
The 9th annual Women’s Climbing Symposium took place on Saturday 7th December at Depot, Birmingham.
We source top speakers from across and outside the climbing world. In recent years Lynn Hill, Catherine Destivelle, Lisa Rands, Caroline Ciavaldini, Hazel Findlay, Jo Pavey and Rachel Atherton have provided inspiration for participants to achieve their goals. The feedback we received was very positive and it is clear that the WCS is now a key event in the calendar for many women.
In 2016 WCS was recognised by the Women's SportTrust #BeAGamechanger awards for raising the visibility and increasing the impact of women's sport.
In 2019 the International Federation of Sport Climbing nominated WCS for the International Olympic Committee Women in Sport Awards.
