Hey ladies! Jeanne Fu of Bouldering Babes NYC is in town and will be holding a FREE bouldering clinic for all of our BKB Chicago lady climbers! She’ll be dolling out tips, tricks and technique advice for newbies (V0-V4) looking to get started or improve their bouldering game.
“Rock climbing was my gamechanger; it became my metaphor for female empowerment: taking on the impossible, tackling my fears, and overcoming that ‘I can’t’ voice in my head and kicking its butt,” said Fu. “Rock climbing took me to new heights, gave me the confidence I needed to believe I CAN, and I’ve never looked back.”
Fu – an avid adventurer, professional rock climbing instructor and experienced mountaineer – created Bouldering Babes to empower women everywhere. With a passion for rock, ice and snow, Jeanne has climbed extensively abroad, from the boulders of British Virgin Gorda to the mountains of Malaysia, Morocco, and Kenya.
She has also taught rock climbing safety, basic and advanced techniques (e.g. belaying and lead climbing), and instructed private and semi-private clients of all ages and levels at Equinox since October 2012. In addition to creating and curating Bouldering Babes and Jet.Set.Jeanne!, she also runs a weekly Women’s Bouldering Clinic in New York City.
We promise … you won’t want to miss this event!
