Pete Whittaker's BATTLE To Send Recovery Drink

Thought of as one of the hardest crack climbs in the world, Recovery Drink on the Profile Wall in Jøssingfjord, Norway has attracted some of the biggest hitters in the trad game over the years...with few successes. In 2013, it was Nico Favresse who made the first ascent of the line, followed by Daniel Jung of Germany, who bagged the second ascent in 2018. So with brutal training regime and a partner in crime in Tom Randall to work the route with, Pete dedicated his climbing trips to making the 3rd (or possibly 4th) ascent of Recovery Drink 5.14c / 8c+.

I have always found it better to use different shoes. Trying to fit both feet into the same shoe always limits my grade.
