Watch Pete Whittaker and Calum Muskett embark on a horizontal journey to establish Britain’s biggest roof climb. The 100-meter, three-pitch route route requires squeezing, chimneys, cracks, and big British sea cliff adventure. In this video Pete tries to climb his new project over a number of sessions, with a few hiccups along the way.
Upon attempting the crux third pitch for the first time, Whittaker said: “We only had three 6s, and I used the first two sixes in probably the first four meters. I nearly threw up after four meters, and literally it’s probably taken me an hour to get back to normal, like feeling normal.”
When he came back to try it again, he brought nine No. 6 cams and six No. 5 cams—at least one with the label still attached.
