Evie Cotrulia is a woman of many talents: as well as being an excellent climber and a big part of Team Scarpa, she is determined to close the gender gap within the climbing industry. Alongside acting as fantastic role model for aspiring female climbers, Evie and her friend and colleague Emma Twyford have set up a new business, Creative Climbing. Creative Climbing’s goal is to provide workshops to teach route setting to women. The inaugural workshop was held in March with great success and aplomb.
