To everyone who attended Woman Up Climbing Festival 2022, THANK YOU! Seeing you all climbing, supporting one another, and smiling from ear to ear filled our hearts with so much joy. We hope you all had as much fun at the festival as we had organizing it.


Touchstone’s Fourth Annual Woman Up Climbing Festival was brought to you by Touchstone Climbing + Mountain Hardwear. This year’s event was hosted at Pacific Pipe from September 9th – 11th. We were thrilled to showcase the all-women Touchstone Climbing routesetting crew and celebrate women and nonbinary folx in climbing in 2022! Woman Up proceeds in 2022 were donated to the Meet Up Groups who co-hosted Friday night’s Kick-Off party; Queer Crush, Lady Crush Crew, ParaCliffHangers, Black Rock Collective.

We were psyched to see so many women hyping each other up and cheering as everyone pushed themselves to their limits in our Citizens competition. What an absolutely impressive turnout of everyday crushers from the extra-pep-in-their-step newbies to gym climbing lifers and weekend warriors! It was an all-day climbing extravaganza! You can find the scores for the Citizens Competition here.


Of the many things that make the Woman Up Climbing Festival so special, our all-women routesetting crew may be our favorite. Woman Up is the only climbing festival in the world set entirely by women. Sarah Filler led the event for the first time along with an entire crew of Touchstone Climbing routesetters.

A keynote address by Kyra Condie kicked off Woman Up 2022! Kyra started climbing at the age of 11 and inspired us all with her story of determination. She was diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis but it didn’t hold her back, she persevered, made her way through the competitive climbing circuit, and qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. At the games, she finished 7th securing her spot for an Olympic invite. Kyra came in 6th in Speed Climbing, 8th in Bouldering, and 11th in Sport.
