The Pinnacle Club/BMC Women’s International Climbing Meet 2016

What a week it was!

Eighty women from 24 different countries came to North Wales for a week of trad climbing. The weather was mixed, but every day saw women getting out there, enjoying their climbing and pushing themselves, whether that was to try their first trad lead or get on an E7.
