Wide Boyz Crack School

Ever been intimidated / stopped by a crack move in a climb? Check out this great series from Wild Country: The Wide Boyz Crack School.

Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker are great tutors, giving clear instructions on each of the techniques for hands and feet, including off-widths, in this well filmed series. Start with episode 1 and work your way through.

I’ve been working on these techniques and with the help of my crack climbing gloves I’m now able to weight a jam. Once you’ve got the hang of it you can climb without the gloves; I was pretty chuffed to discover this a couple of weekends ago, going back to climbs that had stumped me in the past. I’m still at the beginning but feel like crack climbing is more of an option now — the ever so slow expansion of technique!
