Women’s Programs

Come join our climbing days

Specifically for Women

led exclusively by Women Guides.

We have teamed up with Genuine Climbing to provide Women only programming specifically designed to inspire, educate and nurture women climbers of all levels and abilities. We are here to support each other and build a community of empowered women.

I’m Anyssa! I help women climbers gain confidence by teaching them how to overcome self-limiting beliefs and get stronger so they can climb to their greatest potential.

I’m your person when it comes to the world of breaking out of your comfort zone. I’m the creator and owner of Genuine Climbing and my biggest passion is to inspire you to pursue your biggest goals and desires.

I’m a climbing coach for women, speaker, AMGA single pitch climbing instructor and personal trainer. I’ve been obsessed with how positive thinking and mental work can completely reframe your life and have been teaching it to others for almost a decade.

Contact me at for any questions.

Climbing with and learning from Women mentors and guides provides a unique dynamic that is often more nurturing and less intimidating than climbing with men.

Women’s climbing is more than just climbing, it’s an opportunity to connect with other females in a deeper way and have a safe platform for discussing women’s issues.

“This class was fantastic. I feel in one day I learnt what I was trying to get at for over a year. 1:4 ratio was awesome ! The “rinse and repeat” till you get it was great and pairing is up so we can sustain the lessons were great.”

“When you’re with a male guide or even other male partners unless you know them well or they’re close friends the focus is more on the interaction & communication. Here the communication is seamless & the focus is 100% on absorbing information and learning. We can let our hair down and get down to business so to speak & that’s important with something like climbing.”

“I really think women’s brains work differently than men’s. I felt like today was perfect! I learned so much and was able to take it in in a way that I completely understood. And there’s no pressure! You just relax and focus on what you’re learning.”

“I want to thank Anyssa for not only teaching me but being patient with me and encouraging and inspiring and not giving up on me. Being a great teacher is not just about technique; it’s about patience, understanding and letting students learn at their own pace and Anyssa nails it!”

“Because of fear, I always had trouble with lead climbing. With Anyssa, I learned better technique, crushed major goals, and kicked fear to the curb. I felt so supported, inspired, and motivated. Anyssa is not only knowledgeable, she is a blast to be around and her energy can motivate you to do things you never thought possible.”
