Spider Climbing sponsored climber and Squad coach for Red Spider Imogen Horrocks has been in Tokyo competing for TeamGB in the World Cup! Here she is in action…
Imogen Horrocks – @imogenclimbs
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.
