What the Crack School Masterclass fee covers:
1.5 hour crack masterclass with Tom Randall or Pete Whittaker.

About Tom & Pete
Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker shot to fame after their ascent of the world’s hardest offwidth, Century Crack, E10/8c. Captured in the award winning ‘Wideboyz’ movie Tom and Pete won plenty of admirers for their efforts. After running out of offwidths(!!) the dynamic duo switched crack sizes and in the last eighteen months have proved they are true crack masters with some incredible ascents including: Greenspit, 8b+, Europe’s hardest handcrack, and Cobra Crack E9/8c the world’s hardest finger crack.
All profits from these masterclasses will go towards the BMC Paraclimbing team to provide support for the team to attend the 2014 World Cup. Tom and Pete will also be donating a day’s Crack School coaching each to the BMC Paraclimbing Team as part of their involvement.
