Wild Country ‘Crack School’ is a series of six short videos designed to utilise the skills and knowledge of Wild Country climbers Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker to give an introduction to basics of crack climbing. Over six episodes the guys cover all widths of crack: Fingers, Hands, Fists and Offwidths as well as looking at the skills of gear placement and taping up.
Designed for those who know next to nothing about crack climbing and who want to make their first steps, the videos are made to illustrate what the guys think are the most pertinent points for starting out on each size of crack. They look at how to use hands and feet in the crack as well as gear and overall tips on technique and the way to approach each type of crack.
This video is all about handjamming.
The Passion is a bouldering movie including three different crags in Austria. The Zillertal, the Felbertal and the Silvapark near Galtür.
It shows ascents of:
Pitbull 8A (V11), Spirit 8A+ (V12), Pressure Drop 8A, Electra Extension 7C (V9), Bad Chemnist 7C+ (V10), Unterholz8 8A, Milewskycrack 7C+, The Super Tera-O-Mega Project 8A+, The Riddler 8A+/B (V12/13), Clockwork Orange 7C+/8A (V10/11), Incubator 8A+/B in the Zillertal
Libre soft 7C+, Twisted Moonlight 8A, Defender of faith 7C+/8A in the Felbertal
and Pretty Belinda 8A+ trav., Zwiederwurzn 8A in the Silvapark.
Our goal is to share our motivation for bouldering outdoors. We guess it is the best thing that climbing offers and hopefully some of you will try it for the first time after watching the film. But remember that keeping the nature clean is very important cause we all do not want to annoy other climbers and residents.
Thanks for watching. Keep on crushing and we are always happy about feedback.
"Un petit groupe d'irréductibles résiste encore et toujours à l'équipement artificiel des voies d'escalade: ils promeuvent la grimpe traditionnelle, le "TRAD", sur coinceurs uniquement, et même, comme il en est fait la démonstration dans le film, sur simples noeuds de corde - technique obligatoire en République Tchèque notamment. Voici le résumé de leur week-end "TRAD-ANNOT" organisé du 28 avril au 1er Mai 2012 et dont cette première édition a connu un joli succés: vimeo.com/41798206

In this two part series Wild Country athlete James Pearson delves into training for rock climbing and gives us his take on training for stamina climbs. In the videos he looks at pure endurance routes as well as power endurance routes and gives some simple, basic, techniques for training both of these.
In part one he looks at Endurance training for routes of more than 30 moves and discusses some training techniques you can use at nearly any wall. As well as this he takes in some mental and strategic pointers to help you on your way.
James Pearson has put these techniques to good use in his transition from a boulderer and short route specialist to someone who has repointed long 9a routes and plenty of other long sustained climbs too.
