Pete WhittakerProfessional Climber
Pete Whittaker is one of the best crack climbers of the moment.
As part of the famous British duo Wide Boyz, he set new standards of difficulty on off-width cracks, establishing some of the hardest genre routes in the world, like Century Crack (5.14d).
In 2016, he was the first person to rope-solo free climb El Capitan (Yosemite) in less than 24 hours. In 2018, he climbed El Cap and Half Dome of Yosemite, also rope-solo, both in less than 24 hours.
