Indoor Climbing, Nicosia
09 March 2019
AS part of @Cyprus Girls Can celebration of @International Women's Day, we invited women and girls to try out indoor climbing!
We started with our younger girls' session, followed by a wonderful troupe of adults!
We began with an into to the campaign and why we chose to honour International Women's Day -- to celebrate the achievements of women and to challenge stereotypes and bias.
Many participants climbed for their first time today. Probably everyone that came felt slightly nervous at first, but we salute you all for stepping out of your comfort zone.
Be scared and do it anyway!
Maybe one of the best things overheard this evening, after coming down from the wall: "All the emotions!"
Well done to all those that came today. Even if you didn't make it to the top of the route, well done.
Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly!
We look forward to seeing those that would like to continue with climbing at the gym! You can contact @Cyprus Girls Can or the @cyprus federation climbing center for info on classes :)
We thank our belayers this evening for keeping us safe and allowing us to have a great time while climbing :) Thank you @Matthieu, @Alise, @Helena, @Flora :)
