Flash Foxy Summerfest is the first first all-gender event from the popular event organizer known for all-women climbing events.
Summerfest is an event that celebrates women, is put on by women but open to anyone to attend. All speakers, panels, presentations will focus on the stories, challenges and triumphs around women.
This includes a focus on intersectional feminism and the challenges faced by many underrepresented groups in climbing (i.e. LGBTQ+, POC, adaptive).
I met #wcw @heyjaylink a couple of weeks ago in the tablelands. Jess is a stone cold crusher who tries hard and smiles big. She sent Brian’s Project soon after this photo was taken. 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 Thanks for the inspiration and the beef jerky. 🤓 Tag your awesome lady climbing pics #flashfoxy to be featured.

“All clinics and workshops will be led by female guides and female athletes. This event is not meant to replace the Women’s Climbing Festival, but rather to complement it and give us an opportunity for new conversations to happen among our entire climbing community and continue to support our efforts to shift the climbing culture to be a better reflection of all of us.”
