The Women's Bouldering Festival in Fontainebleau is an inclusive platform that allows climbers to meet likeminded individuals in our sport.
We hope to promote excellence in climbing and perpetuate climbing ethics through creating a network of mentorship and support.
We believe that outdoor recreation inspires confidence and helps in building skills transferable to other areas of life.
We promote outdoor conservation and best practices in the Forest of Fontainebleau.
All our actions are rooted in an intersectional framework adopted to advocate for social equity and environmentalism.
Our first event in September 2018 gathered nearly 100 participants. Join us in 2019!

“...very interesting, it built confidence to climb solely with women!”
“It was perfect and I loved the speeches.”
“Before the Festival I had already spent a week in Bleau - it was my first ever week there. I have to admit, it was kind of frustrating - the switch from the gym to outdoor bouldering. But at the festival I felt that I gained confidence through the help of the guides and also because I shared my experiences with other women.”
““Going to that festival gave me a MASSIVE confidence boost with my climbing, and it is still present now. Also I met some great people that I am still in touch with. Wicked! If you read this comment and think of getting tickets, don’t hesitate, just do it.”.”
