Welcome to She Sends Collective, a full service woman-owned and operated coaching and guiding organization serving women and genderqueer humans through both climbing & non-climbing experiences, coaching, community events and high level education to empower climbers to take their climbing journey wherever they see fit.
We believe all climbers deserve access to high quality education that equips them with the skills & education necessary to take climbing wherever they want to in a safe and growth promoting way.
Woman owned + Operated Climbing Guide Service
Our mission here is to create welcoming and safe spaces for women and other marginalized gender minorities to experience climbing in the outdoors.
All training programs are designed by Professional Climber, Chelsea Rude, BA in Integrative Physiology, Performance Climbing Coach, AMGA Single Pitch Instructor, and former US Climbing Team Member + Coach. These programs are perfect for the beginner climber who’s looking to become more efficient all the way to the more advanced climber who is working on sending their first 5.14.
The hands and the heart behind she sends
Hi! I’m Chelsea and I created She Sends Collective as a multifaceted organization. My goals with She Sends is to unite women and genderqueer humans within the community, provide access, uplift leadership, facilitate mentorship and help you along your climbing (and life) journey. While climbing is growing at an exponential rate, it is more important now than ever to provide high level education, mentorship opportunities, and safe & inclusive spaces to these demographics that are still considered minority groups within our sport. This is how we will be able to share our sport with the world in a safe way that allows climbing to be such a powerful tool in our lives.
join the community.
Our Ambassador Program was created to build leadership opportunities for both women and genderqueer humans and to create safe spaces for community engagement. We are currently adding Ambassadors to our team who are passionate about climbing, and eager to create connections amongst women and genderqueer climbers in their community. We are now accepting applications for Ambassadors who will be part of our team for the next year.
