Women in climbing and mountaineering – pushing the limits.

Panel discussion about the state and future of female mountain exploration

The history of women in mountaineering and climbing has been marked with names of icons such as Wanda Rutkiewicz, Gerlinde Kaltnebrunner or Lynn Hill. At the same time, women’s accomplishments have always been compared to men’s and women’s quests, rivalries, ambitions as well as sacrifices and life choices have been long discussed, criticised and commented. How do women set up their goals in the mountains? What are their motivations? What are the challenges they face and what is the future of women’s exploration?
