The Big Bang, the award-winning film about the story of Emma Twyford climbing 9a, is now available to rent or buy online.
Last September, when Emma Twyford powered, crimped and screamed her way to the top of The Big Bang at Lower Pen Trywn, she ended a three-year battle and entered British climbing’s history books as the first British woman to break the 9a barrier.
This 30-minute film by filmmaker David Petts of Volo Digital is her story. It follows Emma Twyford's three-year battle to climb The Big Bang at Lower Pen Trywn in North Wales.
Graded 9a, The Big Bang is one of the UK's hardest climbs and had only previously been climbed twice in its 23-year history. David Petts follows Emma's journey to success, capturing epic footage on The Big Issue (E9) in Pembroke, Mind Control (8c) in Oliana, Spain and big walling in the Dolomites.
