Broad Beta hosted another women's story telling gathering at the Montana Women's Climbing Fest over Memorial Day weekend 2022.

BROADCast: A Night of Women in Wild Places

This was a women's only storytelling night. We heardrfrom five women who presented on some of their big objectives/adventures in the mountains, including Brette Harrington and Chantel Astorga. Their stories were followed by a Q&A session, gear advice for your own upcoming adventures, and a gear raffle! And yes, there was pizza and beer.
