AZWCC responds to Focus post

It is the position of the AZWCC that Focus Climbing Center’s post expressing disappointment in the women in the climbing community was distasteful and inappropriate and only further alienates women in the climbing community. Focus is home to one of our founding chapters, and we are deeply disheartened, but would like to use this as an opportunity to educate our climbing gym partners and rally behind and with the women in the Arizona climbing community.

The AZWCC is hosting a social hour where women will have the opportunity to connect and respectfully discuss the issues they’ve faced in our local gyms and crags. Please join us at Boulders on Broadway on Friday, October 11 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.

If you cannot attend and would like to share your experience, comments, or concerns regarding this or any other issue, please email us at Your input will remain anonymous unless you give us permission to share your information.
