'Wideboyz' Crack School Masterclasses 2014
Wild Country presents the ‘Wideboyz’ 'Crack School Masterclasses' 2014
Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker, shot to prominence after their ascent of the world’s hardest offwidth, the amazing roof of Century Crack, E10/8c, in 2011. Captured in the award winning ‘Wideboyz’ movie Tom and Pete won plenty of admirers with their dedication and training that brought a leap in standards. However, after running out of offwidths(!!) the dynamic duo have proved they are true crack masters (and possibly the world’s best crack climbers) with some incredible ascents including: Greenspit, 8b+, Europe’s hardest handcrack, and Cobra Crack E9/8c the world’s hardest finger crack.
The ‘Crack School’ Mission
This time the ‘Wideboyz’ objective may be a bit safer, and is to pass on their knowledge in a series of exclusive ‘Crack School’ Masterclasses run by Wild Country at some of the Uk’s best climbing walls. Each Crack School Masterclass will take place on specially designed finger, hand and offwidth cracks and the aim is to enable climbers of all abilities to unlock the secrets of crack climbing direct from the Wideboys.
“Thanks for Crack School, especially Pete & Tom who were incredible, helpful and friendly. A great, fun day with some laughs, some tears and bit of bloodshed - Brilliant” Charley Fell
