The UK’s FIRST All-Female Setting Climbing Competition

Earlier this month we hosted the first competition in the UK that had an all-female setting team.

The crew consisted of Evie Cotrulia, Emma Twyford, Gracie Martin and Leah Crane. Jo Robbings had the fun of joining them for the day and finding out a bit more about what life as a setter is like. Evie and Emma recently set up Creative Climbing, a company that aims to encourage women into the world of setting through running a range of workshops. They’re currently offering beginner sessions where you can learn the basics of how to set, including how to use a drill and attach a hold.

Have a watch of the video for a bit of an insight into a day of setting.

Route Setting Changes for 2018

Happy new Year 2018!

To kick off the new year with a bang we will be introducing more frequent route setting at Red Spider. That means more new routes more often for you to play on.

Yann Genoux, one of our regular setters working on one of his comp wall routes.

Red Spider in-house setter Rich setting on the competition wall.


We will be doing this in 2 ways:

  1. Due to popular demand we will be increasing the frequency of our boulder comp from every 2 months to every month. Bringing you 40 brand spanking new boulder comp wall problems, from some of the country’s top setters every month! Excited? We are!
  2. To compensate for the extra boulder comp wall set and due to increased usage we will be introducing an extra reset on our regular circuit sets every other week. We will continue having a reset every Thursday and have the extra resets every other Tuesday. This means about 150 new problems being set per month! Wowsers!

At Red Spider we are committed to bringing you the very best quality route setting with a variety of styles from no fewer than 10 different setters per month both guest and inhouse. We will also be introducing exciting new holds regularly throughout the year in some of the latest shapes on the market, so keep on the look out.

We look forward to seeing lots of you crushing in 2018
