The last decade has seen an unprecedented boom in the number of women getting involved in climbing. What was once essentially a boys club has become a sport with a far more even gender split. There's still a fair way to go, with women currently making up a minority of participants in climbing, but the current trend shows no signs of slowing down. With this in mind, we caught a word with two of Britain's foremost female climbing athletes, Mina Leslie-Wujastyk and Katy Whittaker to discuss the explosion in female climbing, altering expectations and the barriers that are still yet to be crossed. This video is the first of a number of interviews we filmed while at the Arc'teryx Alpine Academy. Tune into the show next week to see more from Will Gadd, Marc-Andre Leclerc and Brette Harrington.

Good interview, great to see more women climbing and on their own. Next year the Pinnacle club and help from the Climbers club are trying to organize an international women's meet in Nth Wales, would be good for Mina and Katy and more British top women climbers to get involved and international stars too. Get in touch with the Pinnicle Club first or the Climbers Club
