In 2009, The WideBoyz (aka Peak District climbers Tom Randall & Pete Whittaker) came up with a plan to climb the world's hardest offwidth crack in America. They had little experience and no real track record of wide crack climbing, but within 2 years they'd accomplished their goal through a mixture of unique training devices, gruelling workout regimes and shear bloody mindedness. This year they have decided to slim the size down from the widest cracks in the world to the thinnest!
Wide Boyz I scooped the top two spots in our Best Climbing Film category last year for the long and short edit.
Can't make the premiere? Don't worry, there's another chance to see the film in our special Climb 1 sessions.
