Captain Tits Out: everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask

The WBF2020 just kicked off with the Route Setting Seminar with Jacky Godoffe.

Unfortunately, at the last moment new regulations with Belgium stopped Nat Naat from coming to teach with Jacky.
Another great person that can't be with us this year is Natalia Boltukhova who taught injury prevention last year.
Natalia wrote this great piece about the importance of choice. We highly recommend it!

Have a read, have a great weekend, and cross your fingers for the storms to pass us by.

Stay safe, crew! xox

At the end of the day, all I want is to have the freedom, the choice, to take my shirt off when it’s hot, and I’m sweating; and for my body to not be sexualized. Is that too much to ask…

Can’t quite believe it but tomorrow we’re kicking off with the third edition of the Women's Bouldering Festival. Undeniably, it will be different this year. It will be smaller and we definitely won’t be reaching into the same chalk bucket. But we will share good times nonetheless!

Believe it or not, but climbing has a huge carbon footprint. Here's how to start tackling it.

How does our love for the mountains affect the climate? And what can we do to change this process? Germany's Lena Marie Müller, who is currently doing a PhD on the effects of climate change at the University of Innsbruck and recently repeated the E9 Prinzip Hoffnung at Bürs, shares her thoughts.

Hej! Någon som reser från Stockholm och som är intresserad av att lösa transport ihop till Font (hyra bil)? Hör av dig! Hi! Anyone travelling from Stockholm and interested in renting a car for transport to Font together with me?
Want to get in to the Scottish mountains in winter. Women only course at the National Mountain Centre.
Hi! First of all: sorry for my bad English ;-) And now the good news: I'm planning a longer stay in Fontaineblau, my personal happy place (and not only mine ;-) - for two months, april and may this year. Since I don't know any boulderers in Bleau and all of my friends have to work, I'm looking for some contact in Bleau... So if you live there or if you know someone that knows someone, send me a PM - it would be great having some boulder sessions together in the forest! And maybe I'll remain till the festival ;-) Best wishes, Dani
