The annual symposium is a chance for women to share their climbing experiences

The Women’s Climbing Symposium will take place in Birmingham this year.

The event, which aims to connect, develop and inspire women’s climbing through collective climbing experiences, the latest research and the best coaching, is being held for the ninth year.

The venue for the December gathering will be The Depot Birmingham, which is managed by Maria Darlington.

WCS director Emma Flaherty said: “We are so psyched to be working with Maria and the Depot Birmingham team.

“We also love that our community is never backward in coming forward with ideas for workshops and talks – we are looking forward to sharing them with you in this year’s fantastic programme.”

Ms Darlington said: “When we were approached to host the WCS at The Depot Birmingham we were thrilled.

“The celebration of the individual within an inclusive and collaborative community is the cornerstone of The Depot ethos, so the Women’s Climbing Symposium is a perfect fit.”
