Monster Cracks with Pete Whittaker and Tom Randall

Pete and Tom will be with us, fresh (!) from their latest exploits in Utah. Expect tall tales and even wider cracks.

Pete Whittaker and Tom Randall (aka The Wideboyz) have already spent many weeks down at The White Rim in Utah, finding and climbing huge roof climbs. But they still have the feeling that they are only just scraping the surface. These sandstone roofs offer some of the most exciting and daunting crack projects in the world. Pete & Tom’s view is that existing routes are still way off current sport climbing standards, and reckon there is little excuse for this. It’s just a matter of motivation…

So: mucho training, and a return to the desert. An all-out unlikely mission where, “we’re currently way too crap” and involving serious teamwork, training oblivion and thinking out of the box. This leads to the conclusion that they might as well go after something that totally motivates them, summarised in a few words: Crack. Hard. Long. Meaty.

This year, Friday is 'Climbers Night' at Kendal Mountain Festival, so make a night of it and meet the best climber in the world right now - Adam Ondra. Then settle into the Malt Room with a whiskey or two for a very special late night session with Jim Herrington who is joining us from New York to share his incredible photography of the icons in mountaineering - 'The Climbers'.
