Bouldering Babes Presents: Female Empowerment Rock Climbing Course

Discover your inner adventuress and badass through this butt-kicking, confidence, and strength building 6-Week Female Empowerment Rock Climbing Course! Never climbed before?  No upper body strength?  No problem!

Have you ever heard that ‘I can’t‘ voice inside your head – you know, the one that tells you ‘it’s too difficult,’ ‘I’m not strong enough,’ ‘I can’t do this‘?

Change those voices from ‘I can’t’ to ‘I CAN!’ and join a community of women who empower themselves and each other through rock climbing:

Rock climbing was my gamechanger; it became my metaphor for female empowerment: taking on the impossible, tackling my fears, and overcoming that ‘I can’t’ voice in my head and kicking its butt.  Rock climbing took me to new heights, gave me the confidence I needed to believe I CAN, and I’ve never looked back.

Jeanne Fu | Founder, BoulderingBabes.com

I CAN do this.  I CAN be strong.

I CAN do this. I CAN be strong.

Weeks 1 & 2: BOULDERING BASICS Learn the lingo and the movement with Jeanne Fu!  In these 1-hour foundation classes, you’ll learn to climb safely and confidently, and confront your fear of heights, falling, and exposure.

She loves bouldering with female-focused hip movements, strong core work, and delicate, balancey footwork to create fluidity with the wall, so there will be some of that. She hates injuries, so there will be none of that.

Weeks 3 & 4: ON BELAY! Harness your inner adventuress and learn the ropes and the nots of knots in Top Rope Basics aka Climbing 101!  These 1-hour classes focus on climbing safety and commands, challenging yourself to summit to the top in the face of fears and frustrations, teamwork, and trust building.

Toprope Basics will cover harnesses, knots, belaying with the GRIGRI, and of course falling. You’ll learn everything you need to know to scale a 50 ft. wall, and safely come off it, as well as pass the belay test.

Toprope Movement will give you essential techniques to progress quickly and with effortless effort. We focus on footwork, weight distribution, balance, and working with your center of gravity on the wall.
