Pete Whittaker: First Ascent of Baron Greenback


British climber Pete Whittaker makes the first ascent of Baron Greenback (E9/10 7a) in Wimberry in the United Kingdom in May 2013. “Baron Greenback’ is the hardest thing I’ve done on grit and an accumulation of everything I’ve learned climbing on gritstone, along with a bit of consistent training on some weaknesses. I’m very very pleased to have done this route. First ascents are always more special to me then repeats," Whittaker said.
