A Chat with Emma Twyford

Emma Twyford is certainly flavour of the month. Thanks to her huge successes and exciting future goals, she has been cover star of both Summit and Climber in recent weeks. When she’s not on the rock, she’s one of the UK’s leading female route-setters and is running her business Creative Climbing offering setting courses to women with fellow setter Evie Cotrulia.

Currently busy setting full time, I managed to catch Emma for a quick cuppa before she set the comp circuit at my local wall. We talked climbing, route setting and inspiration.

Women in Mountain Rescue: Karen Greene

Womenclimb recognises the importance that Mountain Rescue volunteers play in ensuring that climbers and hillwalkers are educated and safe when enjoying the outdoors. They are the unsung heroes who ensure that those lost are found and that those in accidents are cared for.

Women are under represented in Mountain Rescue as they are in other outdoor professions and Womenclimb want to encourage more women to see Mountain Rescue as something they can get involved in.

Over the next few months we will be interviewing a few key women in Mountain Rescue to find out what made them get involved, what commitment it takes, and what they get out of being a member of a team. We’ll also let you know how you can find out more and get involved.

Today we catch up with Karen Greene, one of the Wasdale Team’s Doctors to chat about her involvement in the team, the highs and lows and what she gets out of being in the team.
