The Wide Boyz, Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker, have a tradition on their shared birthday. Every year they celebrate by climbing Master’s Edge (E7 6b, roughly 5.13a) in different costumes. They’ve climbed in suits. They’ve climbed in dresses. They’ve climbed as bananas and dinosaurs. This year they took it a step further by donning fat suits and eating croissants on their way up the wall. Their new girth makes for hard climbing, and the extra padding comes in handy when the wider boys take some big falls.
