Monthly ‘Women on the Wall’ event creates space for women to practice rock climbing in Lawrence

Share this post or save for later

Climb Lawrence invites women to come chalk up their hands and scale the walls during special events each month at the indoor climbing gym off Seventh and Vermont streets.

The Women on the Wall event creates space for women of all skill levels to practice climbing together. It builds community and offers a safe, supportive space to learn about the sport, which many say can be male-dominated.


About 15 women attended the most recent event, held Jan. 27. The agenda included a round-robin introduction session, group tutorials about different climbing techniques, and just plain practice.

By hosting events like Women on the Wall, Climb Lawrence aims to create a space for local women in the climbing community to grow stronger together.

The next event is slated for Feb. 24. Find details on the Climb Lawrence website,
