Recently I was asked by Maijalisa Burkert of Chicks Climbing if I was up for an interview. Who is Chicks Climbing, you might ask? They are only the premiere go-to place for all things related to women’s climbing, both on ice and on the rocks. Their instructional clinics (“Chicks with Picks and “Chicks Rock“) can be found all over the country, where they promote self-reliance by teaching technical skills to help women become knowledgeable, independent climbers. The theme of both their ice and rock climbing clinics is “Women climbing with women, for women.” These Chicks also aren’t afraid to give back – over the past decade they have donated more than $150,000 to local women’s shelters in the Colorado region. This is girl power at its finest, folks!
So with a rap sheet as cool as that, how could my answer to Maija have been anything but a resounding YES! Please head on over to their site to check out what these cool chicks are doing – and if they’re in your area, maybe even sign up for one of their clinics (which I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about!)
