International Women’s Day

I enjoyed reading these interviews the American Alpine Club did with Emily Harrington, Paige Claassen, Melissa Arnot, Sibylle Hechetel, Janet Bergman Wilkinson and Jenn Fleming over the weekend to commemorate International Women’s Day.  I particularly liked Flemming’s take on the biggest misconception about women in climbing:

I think that the biggest misconception about women in climbing is that emotion is a weakness. Men and women climb, behave, and react along a spectrum of emotion; often the typically “female” reaction (e.g. tears or other overly emotional behavior) is perceived as a weakness. In actuality, we all cope with stress in a very individual manner, and there is no objective “best way” to do so.

“Well, we didn’t”

Emily Harrington with a very honest look back on a trip she took to Morocco to climb with Hazel Findlay for the 2013 Reel Rock Film Tour:

I had never climbed a big wall like that before, with such difficult and engaging climbing, daring and dangerous runouts, and for such a long period of time. The entire experience was utterly exhausting. The film crew seemed stressed at first at our hesitation to go back and try again, as if the story wouldn’t be complete without another try, but what if we didn’t want to try again? Well, we didn’t.
