Flash Foxy originated to empower women climbers and offer a virtual space to connect over climbing, being outside together and building community. The inaugural Women’s Climbing Festival in 2016 helped us establish an alternate climbing space in real life that did not center cisgender men. The climbing community is not static and Flash Foxy has adapted over the years to meet the needs of its membership as they grow, change and continue to self-actualize.

Presently, Flash Foxy stands with the women and genderqueer community - including but not limited to gender non-conforming folks - who need a space to pursue their love of the sport without having to deal with historic barriers to access.

Our mission is to provide accessible resources, opportunities and welcoming spaces for our climbing community through events and education programs. Originally created to celebrate women climbing with women, our community has grown to include a range of gender expressions amongst our membership and leadership teams.

Our Vision: Flash Foxy is committed to uplifting all community members that disrupt normalcy and need a space to connect away from narratives that tell them they don’t belong. We will continue to build sustainable spaces for women and genderqueer folks and use climbing as a means for change. We hold the belief that no one is “self-made” and therefore Flash Foxy is committed to being in conversation with other anti-oppressive organizations to disseminate knowledge and power, work collaboratively and normalize being transparent in the outdoors industry. If you want to climb and work on building intentional community, this can be a space for you and your voice to matter, to be present, seen and heard.
