to Jun 27

Women in The Outdoors Week

Join us as we celebrate the power of women and non-binary folks in the outdoors. Through presentations, panels, and adventures, the Women in the Outdoors Week provides opportunities to engage, share stories, and support one another. Elevating these voices empowers and enables all people to have meaningful outdoor experiences.  The Cliffs is proud to be hosting two events this week! Check out the booking link for a full line-up of events.

1. Women Who Crush: Collaborative Climb + Discussion: We're inviting climbers of all levels to a night of skills practice, camaraderie, and discussion. Start the night by working on your skills, partnered with climbing mentors from The Cliffs Community. Whether you're brand new to climbing or looking to step up to the next level, you'll be matched with experienced and supportive women. After a full night of practice, head on over to The Local for a post-climbing presentation and discussion on the topic of women powering women. Join a conversation on how as women, we can continue to grow and support each other and work to break down systemic dynamics that have been fostered between women.

Where: Climbing at The Cliffs at LIC

Post-climbing presentation and discussion at The Local NY

When: June 25th, 6:30pm

Cost: $10 for mentorship + panel (day pass fees still apply)

2. Activism in the Outdoors Panel + No Man's Land Film Festival Hear from a panel of powerful outdoors women from The Cliffs Community about their careers and activism in the climbing world. And then stick around after the panel for the No Man's Land Film Festival - the only adventure film festival to exclusively feature women-identified athletes. We'll also have a raffle, beer, and snacks!
