ABOUT EMMA

Emma Twyford has been climbing for 27 of her 34 years. She started out trad climbing in the Lake District with her Dad and friends. From the age of 10 she enjoyed competing, became British Bouldering Champion and represented Team GB till the age of 24. At this point she decided to return to her love of outdoor climbing. To fulfil her love of climbing she is also a route setter and climbing coach.
Emma was the first British woman to redpoint 9a with an ascent of the Big Bang, she has also on-sighted numerous 8a’s. She is one of very few women to have head pointed E9 and has also flashed E8 on trad. In 2019 she turned to Alpine climbing making the first British ascent of Camilotto Pelissier(8a/+) in the Dolomites.
