JOIN SHE MOVES MOUNTAINS East coast FOR A WEEKEND OF ROCK CLIMBING technical skills, yoga, community, and so much more!

WHETHER YOU ARE BRAND NEW TO ROCK CLIMBING OR HAVE YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, OUR ROCK CLIMBING AND YOGA RETREAT IS AN INCREDIBLY LIFE GIVING EXPERIENCE. AFTER THREE SEASONS OF HOSTING THESE EVENTS in the pacific Northwest WE HAVE WITNESSED THE BARRIERS THAT CAN BE BROKEN AND THE COMMUNITY THAT CAN BE FORMED IN THE PRESENCE OF INCREDIBLE WOMEN. We are excited to offer this experience on the east coast. THE ONLY THING WE EXPECT IS THAT YOU SHOW UP.


Included in this four day retreat is three nights accommodations at The Crashpad, three breakfasts, three lunches, two dinners, snacks, over 18 hours of climbing instruction outdoors with an AMGA instructor, yoga by Peace.Strength.Yoga, evening activities, recovery and training Q & A with SMM guide and certified personal trainer Bethany Macke, and a North Face swag bag.


CLIMBING

Based on experience and skill level you will be able to choose the climbing option that best fits you!

Guiding will be available for a wide variety of skill levels, taught by AMGA instructors Savannah Manning and Brooke Hadden. Our group of ten women will be split up depending on experience.

  • Intro Instruction for Beginner Climbers: Three days of learning the basics of outdoor rock climbing! This is great for beginner climbers who have never climbed outside before or are hoping to climb in the 5.6-5.9 range. Small groups mean specialized instruction and route choices catered to individuals.

  • Intermediate Instruction: for climbers wanting to climb in the 5.8-5.10 range (best for those who are leading in the gym or are climbing 5.10+ on TR)

  • Advanced Instruction: for climbers wanting to climb routes 5.10-5.11a/b range (potential for lead climbing on easier grades)

Climbing locations will be within 45 minutes of Chattanooga. Crag location is determined based on weather.

Our guide ratio is 5:1 to ensure quality and instructor/client one-on-one time.

Opportunities will be presented to lead climb in these guided groups if climbers can demonstrate safe technique on mock lead.


YOGA

Yoga will be offered four times during the retreat by Peace.Strength.Yoga

Rock climber, yogi, and owner of PSY- Kaylee Frano, is a 500 hour certified yoga teacher with over 4000 hours of teacher training. We are excited to have her start our mornings out with one-hour long yoga sessions each day.
