Broad Beta hosted another women's story telling gathering at the Montana Women's Climbing Fest over Memorial Day weekend 2022. Watch the video below.
This was a women's only storytelling night. We heard from 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.
If you have shared any kind of climbing or skiing adventure as a team of women or gender-fluid folks, we’d love to share it with our Broad Beta community. This is a space for our untold personal journeys, their joys, sorrows, struggles and epiphanies.
