The Wide Boyz, Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker, head to Edinburgh to sample some of the finest roof crack climbing around on a crag that’s never wet. Tom even called it “better than Indian Creek!” The duo teamed up with Robbie Phillips and Culann O Brien, who showed them around the urban cracks of Edinburgh for the weekend. There are repeats up to 5.13b (yes they use the YDS on a bridge crack in Scotland) and the first ascent of an unclimbed project.

In part one above, the team try some of the areas hardest urban roof cracks. In part two, below, the group gets into some mischief climbing a roof crack over a canal.
