Watch Pete Whittaker's Battle to Send Recovery Drink

Publish date:

Thought of as one of the hardest crack climbs in the world, Recovery Drink on the Profile Wall in Jøssingfjord, Norway has attracted some of the biggest hitters in the trad game over the years with few successes. In 2013, Nico Favresse made the first ascent of the line, followed by Daniel Jung of Germany, who bagged the second ascent in 2018. So with a brutal training regimen and partner-in-crime Tom Randall, Whittaker dedicated his climbing trips to making the third (or possibly fourth) ascent of Recovery Drink (5.14c/8c+).
