Masterclass with Emma Twyford

A BIT ABOUT EMMA
Emma, is a one of the UK’s top climbers, having climbed 8b+ sport, E9 Trad and bouldered V10.   Not only this but Emma has a Degree in Sports coaching so certainly knows a thing or to when it comes to guiding climbers on their paths to crushing those routes and problems.

Emma’s top tips for those who have been climbing indoors for a year or two? Things that can make a massive improvement.  

  • Footwork and movement are the key ones. if you start climbing inside you have all these positive holds so people don’t look at the basics of how to use their feet and move properly. Eg you can try taking out the hand hold so you only climb on [arrest] and grooves.
  • Have a play time on a problem. Try once and do it one way, then try again and do it differently. See which works better and why.
  • Watch other climbers – see how and why they climb well.
  • People think they need to train to get stronger but, in fact, most people would see greatest improvement by focusing on their technique.
