Women's Trad Festival 2022
The dates for Women's Trad Festival 2022 will be released shortly. To be the first to know sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media. Read on for more information about the different ticket types we offer...
Learners at WTF have the opportunity to develop a range of skills, tailored to your previous experience and personal goals.
These tickets are aimed at a range of abilities, from those who have never climbed before, to those who have some trad experience but want to build confidence.
We will release more details on our Learner tickets when we announce the 2022 festival dates.
Our workshop tickets are for climbers who already have some trad climbing experience but would like to develop their skills.
Examples of workshops we've run in the past include Crack Climbing, Self Rescue, Learning to Lead, RCI Support and Breaking Barriers (focused around working through physical and mental barriers).
We will be offering a range of workshops at WTF2022 and will release all details and course structure when tickets are available.
Parent & child tickets
Our Parent and Child tickets give parents the opportunity to attend the festival with their child or children, aged 8 to 18 years old.
Our 2021 workshop was focused on helping you and your children develop the skills to trad climbing together safely and independently after the festival.
As with the other ticket types, we will be publishing full details when we release the dates for the 2022 festival.
How do I buy a ticket?
This year we are running a ticket ballot. This means that everyone who wants to attend the festival as a learner can apply, and successful climbers will be randomly selected from the applications. The ballot for this year's festival is now closed.
As well as a range of ticket types, there are several other supporting roles which we would not be able to
run the festival without:
These lovely ladies and men take our learner ticket holders out climbing. They all hold their RCI/SPA or above. They will spend the weekend teaching gear placements, building anchors, building confidence and some may get their learners leading.
All of our mentors are AMI (the Association of Mountaineering Instructors) instructors who have their MCI (Mountaineering and Climbing Instructors Award). They spend the weekend at the crags supporting our leaders, in a 1:3 ratio.
We couldn't run the festival without these special people. They support us by making the festival the best it can be by keeping the site looking fabulous, running registration, selling mugs, and being generally brilliant all weekend.
