Crack School, Episode 3: Fist 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, hands, fists, and offwidths—as well as gear placement, taping up, body position, and overall technique. Designed for those who know nothing about crack climbing, these six videos will illustrate the most pertinent points for starting out. To follow along with "'Crack School" videos, there's a fantastic selection of Wild Country prizes to be won every week for the next six weeks. In this week's competition, there's a chance to win one of 10 great prizes, including some great hand-sized gear, and a total prize pool worth $750. Click here to check it out.
