Climbing mentors Kai Lightner, Mikhail Martin (Brothers of Climbing), Erynne Gilpin (Indigenous Womxn Climb), and Bethany Lebewitz (Brown Girls Climb) are working to bring diversity to climbing and they are bridging gaps so that we can celebrate an outdoor community where everyone is included.
These four remarkable outdoor activists join us on stage in Banff for a panel discussion hosted by James Edward Mills. “This opening night event is definitely on my top ten list of things not to miss at this year’s festival.” said Joanna Croston, Festival Director.
“It’s one of most important conversations in climbing today and we’re lucky to have a stellar line up of panelists to bring the diversity discussion to the forefront.” For more on this year’s festival visit here.
