New Mega-Offwidth for Wide-Boy Pete W

© Pete W

The legendarily hilarious UK Wide-Boyz Pete Whittaker and Tom Randall have been back at it again with another trip to the US of A looking for that ultimate offwidth.

Reading their social media postings it seems they did find a 'God Line' but it doesn't sound like they ticked it... yet. But that didn't stop Pete onsighting what could still be one of the world's toughest offwidth roof routes - see his facebook post below.

Tom Randall commented on Facebook:

"This lad just put up the first ascent of one of the USA's hardest offwidths today, onsight. He screamed like he was giving birth to a Friend 6, and lost a good section of skin in the bombay roof chimney section, but it was probably (maybe?!) all worth it."
