The event was a success, and was covered previously on UKClimbing and also sparked an interesting debate on the poster for the event in the UKC Forums.

Am I the only one who is having problems with the sound on this video? seems like whenever someone is talking there is no sound (e.g. shauna comments in the opening sequence, Jon giving his talk?

Oddly seems to work fine on my Tablet, but not on my PC (I have sound e.g. music, but no speech)

Perhaps, but it does emphasise the blatant and unapologetic sexist nature of this event, and brings into sharp focus the paucity of Men's Climbing Symposia & related events. Wise-up, BMC.

Is it just me bit but doesn't Shauna sound American????

I used to have the same view, especially of a ladies night run by the local wall, which included light touch free basic tuition. I now think differently, women are enourmously outnumbered in climbing, and the more that can be done to help them overcome their reservations the better. Men and women are different, and have different needs. as climbing is male dominated (wall owners, designers etc) it has lead to male orientated training facilities. An example of this is the lack of hard slabby climbing/bouldering walls, instead they all have big overhangs that favour male stregth over female agility
