Bishop's first ever Women's Climbing Festival was held last weekend. It was great to see all the fired-up female crushers out there and it sounds like a good time was has by all.

Editor Julie Ellison always felt out of place in groups of women. That changed at the first ever Women's Climbing Festival in Bishop, California.

Hey boys and girls! It's been snowing down in the valley and while that's awesome! it also means the rocks are wet and cold. Please remember that the rock here, especially on the table lands, get brittle when wet.

DON'T CLIMB on it until it has had plenty of time to dry or you risk breaking holds!

This is true even in the milks. Be safe and conscientious out there!

Whats up everyone! Now that you have all been caffeinated and educated don't forget to head out to the Milks on Monday the 18th to help do a little work! Hope you all can make it!

Some important reminders from our friends at the Access Fund. Although we don't have sandstone here, our volcanic tuff is pretty soft and porous, so please give it a chance to dry out after a good soaking and use a horse or boar hair brush.

Thanks and happy climbing!
