For the first time, this year in september, the Women’s Bouldering Festival took place in Fontainebleau. A dedicated boulderer, Zofia Reych, organized the event and I think it was a success. I had so much fun there, got to know some interesting women and I would like to tell you more about the event in this episode. You will also hear some of the participants opinions. I also tried to answer one question for myself: Why is there a need for female events in the bouldering scene? If you’ve listened to the episode, I’d be curious to hear what you think about it!
