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.
This week Tom looks at taping up - an essential skill as you move through the grades - and especially if you're on a trip the golden rule is that prevention is better than cure. It only takes a minute to destroy your skin but can take days and days to repair, harming your chances on other routes and possibly ruining your trip.
