Texas Women’s Climbing Workshop
October 19, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - October 21, 2018 @ 6:00 pm$500
This will be the ISA Texas’ second women’s tree climbing workshop and it is designed for women who have never climbed trees before with ropes and harnesses but also those who have prior experience and want to improve their ability.
Come learn a new skill or improve your foundation in a safe and positive environment. This two and a half-day event was specifically created for women by women climbers, who have competed in tree climbing championships & are working in the tree care industry.
ISA Texas has teamed up with the Women’s Tree Climbing Workshop to offer a fun, safe space to learn. No worries about looking silly or not being safe. This workshop is open to all women (18+), skills and ability levels. Bring your tree climbing equipment (if you have any) and we’ll help you determine what’s safe to use for tree climbing. Don’t have equipment? We’ve got you covered. Taught by International Tree Climbing Championship competitors Bear LeVangie, Melissa LeVangie and Rebecca Seibel-Hunt, with over 40 years of collective climbing experience, you know you’re in good hands.
You will learn a multitude of styles in climbing equipment and techniques. Come network with women and female arborists from all over the country and Texas! This will be an all-inclusive weekend, we’ll provide all the instruction, fun, use of equipment, yoga, food and lodging for 3 days/2 nights. You will leave from this climbing experience with a new skill, wonderful memories, new friends, and a sense of personal accomplishment. This workshop is limited to 20 participants.
Instruction, meals, lodging, yoga, networking, climber insurance, CEUs, event t-shirt, use of all equipment, amazing prizes & a whole-lotta fun that you will never forget!
