Ladies Weekend Out // Spring 2018 Recap

Ladies Weekend Out event Golden State Guiding
Lauren Breitenbach Golden State Guiding Ladies Weekend Out

Well the first ever Ladies Weekend Out event with Golden State Guiding is in the bag and what a success it was! We were blessed with an amazing group of talented women who came to the event ready to climb, learn and have a great time! Education was at the forefront of the weekend and all of our Ladies soaked up the knowledge our certified AMGA guides had to offer. Sport anchors were built, rappelling lessons facilitated, gear placement and anchor demonstrations provided and of course the ever so popular tape gloves were put into action because our Ladies got on some crack! The #Sladies were out in full force this weekend and really took home some great memories! Big thanks to everyone who came out for the first ever Ladies Weekend Out event with Golden State Guiding! It was an amazing event and we couldn't be more pleased with the outcome! 

A special thanks goes out to GSG's head Guide for the weekend Lauren Breitenbachfor facilitating an amazing event. Big thanks to GSG Guide Tyler Dandurandfor helping out throughout the weekend and to GSG's newest apprentice/ SPI Aspirant Sarah Barille for keeping the girls safe and running her own lessons with the participants. Also, a large shoutout goes out to Oliver Dela Cruz for filming the entire weekend and to Margaret Chiu, Vertical Hold Instructor, for working with the Ladies on technique and movement both days, we couldn't have done it without any of these talented individuals. 

And last but not least, a HUGE thanks to all our partners who supported this event, Aret BasewearSaint ArcherRiot Cake Co.Vertical Hold Climbing GymEvolvShelta HatsAmerican Alpine Club, and prAna. The girls were given their goody bags at our party at Saint Archer Brewery Saturday night and they were  beyond stoked to say the least, thanks for your support!
