I was thrilled last night to meet a group of ladies who are involved with the group Big Girl YYC. I messaged Erin (who is the founder of the group) and asked if she was willing to host a beginner climbing class.
Her group is all about everyone is welcome and she puts together events that are safe and welcoming to all body types but especially to say "Hey big girl, you can do it! come play with us!!!" I know what climbing has meant to me and I really want to get more people out trying things they never thought they could do.
So last nigh 10 women were in the class and every single one just kicked ass! Im so freaking happy I was right and that there is a market of curious and excited people who are willing to put something unexpected and hard a try.
I hope I found some new climbing buddies :)
