This is a casual meet-up for women and non-binary climbers. Climbers of all abilities are invited to come -- beginners welcome!

~~~ Save the Date: We are working on a Women + NB Weekend at Camelot / Rumney on Saturday April 30. We will host 1-2 official MITOC beginner / intermediate friendly climbing trips, with an open invite to all women + NB climbers to the campfire at Camelot Saturday night. Self-organized trips encouraged Sunday. More details soon!~~~
