Crack School, Episode 1: Finger Cracks


"Crack School" is a series of six short videos designed to utilize the skills and knowledge of Wild Country climbers Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker to give an introduction to basics of crack climbing. The guys will cover all widths of cracks—fingers, gands, fists, and offwidths—as well as look at gear placement, taping up, body position, and overall tips on technique. Designed for those who know next to nothing about crack climbing and who want to make their first steps, these six videos will illustrate what the guys think are the most pertinent points for starting out.
