Emma Twyford in history: she's the first English woman to climb a 9a!
In Wales she hits the third ascent of The Big Bang18 September 2019
Emma Twyford has climbed The Big Bang in North Wales becoming the first English woman to climb a 9a route.
An extraordinary Emma Twyford wrote her name in the history of the sport by becoming the first English climber to climb a 9a pitch. In Lower Pen Trwyn, in fact, in North Wales, Emma has solved The Birg Bang after a long battle, a very severe route released by Neil Carson in 1996 and then repeated only by James McHaffie even in 2011. Since then nothing more until the repetition of the Twyford.
