2017 Women’s Climbing Festival: First Day, Last Day

The new all-women production team, Never Not Collective, came to the 2017 Flash Foxy Women’s Climbing Festival in Bishop last month to record and share the thoughts of women on the first and last days of the festival.

Part 1 captures what women found to be their biggest challenge as a female climber while part 2 asks women what they were taking away from this year’s event after three days of climbing, discussions, film screenings, and female-led clinics.

First day

Last day

Started by four unapologetic women of the outdoors, Never Not Collective seeks to tell the stories of everyday people doing great things, brave things, things that are challenging, engaging, and gratifying—regardless of “success.” Action is exciting, but we believe that people, with all their complexity, faults, and flaws, are at the heart of every compelling story. Our deep commitment to collaboration stems from diverse backgrounds in writing, photography, video, multi-media, and analytics. This fusion of unique perspectives helps Never Not create refreshing content that connects with viewers. Never Not Collective is Julie Ellison, Shelma Jun, Leslie Hittmeir and Colette McInerney.
