WOMAN UP | 2022 | 2020 | 2019 | 2018 | 2017 |


Touchstone’s Fourth Annual Woman Up Climbing Festival is brought to you by Touchstone Climbing + Mountain Hardwear. This year’s event will be hosted at Pacific Pipe through September 9th – 11th.

The Woman Up Climbing Festival is a celebration of the incredible women and non-binary folx present in every aspect of rock climbing—from routesetters to weekend warriors to professional athletes and bright-eyed newbies. With this multi-day event, we hope to inspire more people who identify as women or non-binary to join our industry, achieve their personal goals, and find their community.

For all the women and non-binary folx who’ve ever felt like they’ve had to justify themselves at the crag or the gym, this festival is a chance for us to remind each other that we CAN reach that hold, we CAN make that dyno, we CAN lead that pitch—and we can lead the industry, too.

We are thrilled to showcase this year’s all-women routesetting crew and celebrate women and non-binary folx in climbing in 2022!


Aug 1st – 31st

She Sets Kilter Challenge

Never set a climb on the Kilter App? Watch a virtual class with the one and only, Jackie Hueftle. Jackie is the COO and co-founder of Kilter and she was the head setter for Woman Up in 2017, 2018, and 2019!
