FRIDAY NIGHT VID: Pinnacle Club/BMC Women's International Climbing Meet 2016

This week's Friday Night Video gives us a glimpse into some of the adventures and fun that the climbers at the Women's International Climbing Meet had. This meet, which took place a few weeks ago in the Llanberis Pass, was organised and run by the Pinnacle Club and The BMC and brought together 80 climbers from all over the world for a week of trad climbing in North Wales. The event was a celebration of women's climbing and an opportunity to share experiences, learn from each other, get psyched and have fun.


'Something remarkable happened in the Llanberis Pass last week...From day one, there was a fantastic atmosphere and a real buzz, with so many women psyched to get out, climb, and push their grade, whatever their starting point...' Read Pinnacle Club member Abi Chard's report on the meet here.
