Course or workshop description
Come and join us for a weekend of indoor and outdoor climbing in the Lake District! This retreat is specifically for women from muslim backgrounds, and is part of the Wanderlust Womens group. The weekend is for women who are really interested in learning how to climb. You don't need any prior experience, just as long as you are keen to learn and build up your confidence on rock and indoor climbing walls. We want this weekend to have a small group vibe, and be a nice mix of spending time away together, being in a beautiful place, and getting stuck in to climbing. We will do one day of outdoor climbing, and one day of indoor climbing. Who is running the weekend? Esther Foster will be instructing the weekend. Esther has been part of many Wanderlust activities and retreats before. Shareen from the Wanderlust Women will be helping during the weekend, answering some of your questions beforehand, and helping to make the weekend as fun, supportive and successful as possible!
