Wild Country Crack School – Episode 4 – Offwidth Cracks – By Tom Randall And Pete Whittaker from Wild Country on Vimeo.

“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.
