Wild Country 'Wideboyz' Crack School Masterclass series

The ‘Wideboyz’ have another mission!!
Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker, shot to fame after their ascent of the world’s hardest offwidth, Century Crack, E10, which was captured in the award winning ‘Wideboyz’ movie.  After running out of offwidths(!!) the dynamic duo switched crack sizes and in the last eighteen months have proved they are true crack masters with some incredible ascents including: Greenspit, 8b+, Europe’s hardest handcrack, and Cobra Crack, E9, the world’s hardest finger crack.

The ‘Crack School’ Masterclass Mission

This time the ‘Wideboyz’ objective may be a bit safer, but is an equally skilful task, which is to pass on their knowledge in a series of exclusive ‘Crack School’ Masterclasses run by Wild Country at some of the Uk’s best climbing walls. Each Crack School Masterclass will take place on specially designed finger, hand and offwidth cracks and the aim is to enable climbers of all abilities to get involved and to unlock the secrets of crack climbing direct from the Wideboys. 

How It Works
Each ‘Crack School’ Masterclass costs £20 per person and all lessons will be taken by either Tom Randall or Pete Whittaker.  The minimum age is 10 years.
