One of our favorite things to do with social media and our website is to give cool stuff away. It’s probably one of your favorite things for us to do as well! Well, this one is kind of a big deal— if you’re a chick. If you’re a dude, you may want to cry just a little bit because your dudeitude will prevent you from entering! That doesn’t mean you can’t root for your favorite lady crusher though, or even make her enter this rad contest.

city of rocksChicks Climbing and Skiing is doing their next program at City of Rocks in Idaho. Their women’s only programs have had plenty of accolades laid upon them so further introduction is probably unnecessary but click through to this link if you have been somehow living under a rock and don’t know they are all about.

City of Rocks, the site of the program is sited in a sage and aspen filled valley in Southern Idaho. It’s granite domes and spires house a variety of super classic sport and trad routes comprised of cracks, slab and more. The area is noted for it’s large collection of moderate routes and excellent camping. In short, it’s an ideal place for ambitious women to meet up to hone skills and commune with the rock as well as the other women in the program.

The program is scheduled to take place June 23 through 27. There are more details here at the Chick’s website but let’s talk about the interesting part.

We’re Sending One Lucky Girl On this Trip

Visit this page (you won’t be able to enter until the 28th) in order to enter. You can view contest rules and all the boring stuff there as well. It’s pretty simple though. All you gotta do is just submit a picture of yourself climbing and in the description tell us why you’d benefit from this trip and what you hope to gain from it. Pretty easy right?  Before you enter, you’ll need to be sure you are free to attend the program and can get yourself to Idaho to participate! Also, check to be sure you are a woman. If not, you can’t win!  If you lack gear, Chicks Climbing and Skiing can set you up with some shoes, helmet and harness love. You’ll be responsible for your own sleeping bag, snacks and lunches. You’ll be selected on the merit of your description so put some care into it! Also, you can nominate a woman by entering them in this contest. Be aware that we’ll contact the winner at the contest end to verify they can actually make it on the trip so that could be an issue if you are trying to surprise a lucky woman in your life.

This contest officially begins on April 28th so that gives you a little bit of time to snap a photo or dig through your photo library for a suitable one. Until then, spread the word and encourage at least woman you know would love this trip to enter!
