A Climbing Chat With The Ladies

Jen Vennon, writing for her sponsor Prana’s blog:

Over the years I’ve kept a mental list of advice or suggestions I’d give to a girl new to the climbing world.

As someone who is not a girl but who has spent a lot of time trying to give beta to a girl who is over a foot shorter than me, I particularly enjoyed tip #3:

The problem with beta from big dudes is that their bodies are so much different from that of a woman. Even is the height is the same, our center of gravity is different and therefore the balance of any given move is going to be different.

Are you sure you don’t want to try my beta again?  It’ll totally work this time!
