Wild and weightless climbing collaboration

Climb - explore - be free - be wild - grow

She Moves Mountains and Wild and Weightless collaborate to inspire positive body image through an empowering experience of climbing outdoors, where participants can celebrate their bodies for all that they can DO, rather than what they look like.  


This outdoor experience aims to build compassionate relationships with our bodies through time spent outside, and will offer space to challenge the myths we have created about our bodies.

She Moves Mountains AMGA Single Pitch Instructors will provide two days of rock climbing outdoors at Smith Rock State Park. Wild and Weightless staff will provide discussion and insight into creating positive relationships with our bodies.


Dates: Saturday September 8th/Sunday September 9th   

Cost: $275


Two full days of climbing instruction, all climbing gear, one organic dinner, and counseling from Wild and Weightless staff

Does not include:

Camping gear, breakfast, lunch, and gratuities for She Moves Mountains/Wild and Weightless staff


Saturday/Sunday day: Rock climbing at Smith Rock State Park, paired with discussions and activities led by Wild and Weightless.

Saturday evening: A shared organic and enriching dinner at Skull Hallow campground, with a discussion about the day. 

Sunday evening: Closing discussion and thoughts about the event. 

Both new and experienced climbers are welcome.
