Well another amazing weekend of climbing with a great group of Ladies went down for our Ladies Weekend Out, 2019 Spring event in San Diego! It was our largest group of Ladies to date for an LWO event at 15! Throughout the weekend all participants were taught the necessary skills on how to climb outdoors on their own including anchor building, rappelling, and gear placements, and of course, lots of climbing ensued! Saturday night found us at Saint Archer Brewery where the Ladies indulged in some tasty, local craft beer, delicious dessert provide by Riot Cake Co. and they finished off with a good ol’ fashioned brewery tour! Big thanks to all the Ladies that came out for the weekend, it was a pleasure having you all attend our event! Also, big shout out to our GSG Guides, Lauren Breitenbach, Sarah Barille and Tyler Dandurand for facilitating, photographers Jameson Schultz and Albert Cheng for capturing the moments, as well as to our partners, Tera Kaia (formerly Aret), prAna, Outdoor Research, Shelta Hats, Saint Archer Brewery, Riot Cake Co., American Alpine Club and Allied Climbers of San Diego, we couldn't do it without the support of all these amazing guides and companies! Stay tuned for some exciting information regarding our next Ladies Weekend Out, landing in a different state this summer, 2019!

An ALL Ladies weekend of climbing is returning to San Diego this Spring!
Golden State Guiding has partnered up with Aret Basewear and Saint Archer Brewery once again for an all ladies weekend of climbing March 30th & 31st! Twelve lucky ladies will have the opportunity to climb some of San Diego's most popular rock climbing crags with our AMGA certified guides. Both days will be packed with fun climbing for all abilities, technical clinics introducing you to outdoor climbing, and good vibes!
Our inaugural Ladies Weekend Out last Spring was a huge success!

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!
