With the striking backdrop of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains, more than 150 female climbers gathered for the first ever Women's Climbing Festival in Bishop, California. The event, hosted by the female-focused Flash Foxy, included a welcome party at Mountain Rambler Brewery, climbing clinics and workshops, a Women in Climbing panel discussion, the No Man's Land Film Festival, scores of giveaways, free food, and of course, plenty of climbing. Read about Editor Julie Ellison's experience climbing with only women: "The beta is way better, the psych is high, and the positive vibes are overwhelming."
