YES, new problems at the Hangar and people are loving these ones. Check out one of our favourites from the set…
Climbing superstars, Shauna Coxsey and Alex Johnson will be in The Climbing Hangar on Wednesday from 8-9pm signing copies of the new CAC pinup calendar.
All proceeds go to Climbers Against Cancer and you get to meet world class athletes and ask them for pro tips!
It’s important to mention that I am obviously aware that a pinup calendar, even for a good cause, is not going to sit well with everyone and that by hosting, I’m condoning it. So why did I agree? Mina’s blog gives thoughtful insight into why she got involved in the project and largely reflects my thoughts. Sexuality, objectification, exploitation, authorship of your own identity and freedom of expression, quickly blend together into what is muddy water and a tricky place to make a clean cut decision. I hope it raises money, I hope the athletes in it are seen as strong and capable as we know them to be. But we also know that media, once public, is no longer under anyones control. i am aware that our support for this event is open to criticism. Hopefully the intentions of the all female production team, the aims of CAC and those of TCH in trying to raise money, albeit in an imperfect way are appreciated if not backed by everyone.
I welcome your thoughts and critiques of the project and our hosting, hopefully, if the event is not to your taste, but CAC is something you support, we have the iron on motifs too that look great and won’t infringe on important beliefs. Ged.
More than epic, more than radical, basically awesomer! Indoor climbing at it’s most social, most fun and most prize giving! Are you in it?
Climbers Against Cancer are launching a pinup calendar featuring the top female boulders in the world to raise money for the cause.
Support a good cause and maybe get someone a great Christmas present.
Round 2 of the WBL at the Hangar was in full force this past Friday. The setters really wanted to test the technical skills of the climbers entering the competition – the problems demanded an alternative approach, commitment and real determination. These problems were not your usual run of the mill problems…From palming and pressing to springing for holds, this round had a bit of everything. Once again the atmosphere was electric and the turnout for a local competition was phenomenal. Big thanks for your support and making the WBL such a great event to be part of. Below are the results from Round 2. Roll on Round 3 on the 13th December.
