For over 25 years Carolyn Parker has been an athlete and a coach. Throughout her journey she has been a trail breaker for women in the arenas of mountain guiding, climbing, and coaching. Her accomplishments are many, from founding Climb Like a Girl, to currently owning the only all-female owned and operated strength training gym in the country, Ripple Effect.
She and Steve House first met and climbed together in 1995. The two of them will recount Carolyn’s pioneering work and discuss questions you pose by chat as well as:
- Female athletes and the headwinds they face.
- Female leaders in climbing and the backcountry.
- The art of creating a judgement-free space for training.
