Alpha Werewolf Khai going through a weekend applying his movement skills in a more practical manner.
After a week of typical gym training such as pull-ups, military presses, bench presses and the likes, it's good to develop thr skills aspect of one's training.
Climbing at The Cliff (located at @sciencecentresg) allows him to practice utilizing his strength and mobility in a practical way. Besides the physical aspect, there's the mental aspect to deal with when you're getting higher and tired.

Dear outdoor industry and literally every industry ever •
It is not enough for you to email the black or brown woman who climbs, bikes, skiis, etc. and ask to feature her in a shoot, interview her for her knowledge, ask her to post for your brand, or require any part of her labor in anyway and give her “gear” in return, or not compensate her at all. That is not your organization’s right step in diversity; it is tokenism and the upholding of white supremacist ways of benefiting from the labor of BIPOC.
It is not enough to make that “diversity hire” or advertise “diverse staff” simply to pat yourself on the back, when you don’t distribute funds for INTERSECTIONAL, and antiracist education and trainings and continue to maintain an exclusive and unsafe space. And it is not enough to put all of the labor (with little to no compensation) on your black and brown employees, expecting them to perform and do all of the work you should always have been doing, and offering them no support. Stepping back and passing the mic to BIPOC folx is in no way the same as requiring all of their labor for free to avoid doing the work. Additionally, if your diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) work still upholds white supremacy and comfort at the disposal of the black and brown folx involved, then it is just racism that you’re trying to disguise with acronyms. It’s as simple as that.
Lastly, this is for all the non-BIPOC folx - it is not enough to claim allyship, “wokeness,” and “I’m not racist” if your actions do not show it. If you are not willing to accept responsibility and self-reflection when the BIPOC folx in your life correct your potentially problematic behavior (often because they care and are willing to take the time to see you grow) then you’re just as toxic as the blatantly racist dude down the street. Additionally, it is not enough to privately “champion” for diversity, or act appalled when BIPOC share their experiences of racism or homophobia (two of many examples). If you are not publicly with us, or you’re just with us when it is convenient, then you’re not with us.
