THE B.I.G. INITIATIVE

THE B.I.G. IDEA

The B.I.G Initiative wants to take concrete action to help Canadian womxn achieve their goals in climbing. We want to encourage gyms to hire more womxn in central roles such as routesetting or coaching. We also want to create a community where female-led projects can gain momentum and have a meaningful impact on our sport and its culture.

Thanks to The North Face's support we are able to offer all the routesetting workshops for free! Their involvement will also allow us to develop new projects in the near future. Thank you The North Face for believing in The B.I.G Initiative and for helping make real change happen. We couldn't do it without you!

At barely 5’1” with a neutral ape index, I learned early on that the rock generally doesn’t offer equality.
