Tom Hull, LCC Area Manager says: "HarroWall are extremely proud to be hosting the Women's Climbing Symposium in our inaugural year. HarroWall very much shares the WCS principles of connect, develop and inspire when it comes to climbing, and we look forward to welcoming some very psyched women to the largest bouldering centre in the UK."

WCS Founder and Co-Director, and two-time IFSC World Cup Champion Shauna Coxsey says: "I'm so excited about this year's event! Every year we take on participant feedback and adapt our programme to make sure we continually connect, develop and inspire women climbers. We're already working hard to make 2018 the biggest and best year yet."
