Wilton Fest

Emily Pitts

This year it was just me at Wiltonfest, but it was a late shout-out and I had already planned to deliver a session around climbing confidence to a small group in the afternoon. I managed to find a climbing buddy to hang out with early on and polish off a couple of quick seconds, followed by my session, attended by 10 people, which went by quickly and got good feedback. The weather stayed nice and it was a lovely afternoon that was extremely well attended, earning Wiltonfest the accolade of most popular BMC event. Hope to see a good contingent there in 2019.
