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 gear and gear placement.
May dose for you all, the weather has been weird this month, really hot days, wild storms and some perfect conditions, unfortunately I have done an injury in my hand so no climbing for a couple of weeks, but still some nice climbs, Its been nice actually going out and doing some of the circuits rather than trying the harder things
But saying that I got spanked on a blue slab at 95.2, think I will stick to the harder stuff, they seem easier :))))
