On half of the famous Wide Boyz, Pete is well known for his off-width adventures with partner in crime Tom Randall.
One third a professional climber, making a living from climbing related activities and work, and two thirds trying to make up the difference. Having grown up in the Peak District I have been connected to climbing for my whole life. I am primarily a trad climber, and enjoy developing new routes. I'm particularly interested in crack climbing, (which involves techniques to jam between the space in the rocks). Not being physically the strongest, the climbing suits my style as it is a very technical and also inspires me as crack climbs offer some of the most aesthetic lines and access to some of the best rock features in the world.
- Retweet Nick Bullock: Today I went out climbing with these two... I've been accused of 'partner look' in the past, but this is spooky.… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

- Short little taster crack sessions at Fort William Festival. Cracks, films, lectures. You can't go wrong mountainfestival.co.uk/workshops.html
