The story of why we are Mum's Gone Climbing
Hey, my name is Nell and I am the founder of MGC. Once upon a time in my mid twenties I was just discovering climbing when I fell pregnant. My climbing community consisted of mostly men, and I didn't know any mothers who climbed. I literally had no role models, so I did what I thought was the right thing and stopped climbing immediately.
Our son was born with a rare genetic syndrome, and motherhood became a series of specialist appointments, therapy sessions, and WTF moments. Five years, and another baby later, I FINALLY stuffed my mama feet back into climbing shoes. It was a pivotal moment.
Climbing seemed like a wonder drug for the challenges of motherhood, and I went on a mission to find other climb mama’s. What I found was a tribe of amazing women. Each with their own story, struggles, limitations, fears.... and every single one had been empowered by climbing.
This is how Mum's Gone Climbing began, and the journey is still unfolding. With the dedication of a small group of climbing mums we are continually growing and exploring new ways to help support and inspire our community.
