Big MWV Ice Fest news!
Friday Evening at Theatre in the Woods, after the feature presentation by Jon Walsh has you super stoked and you've bid on the killer Access Fund silent auction items, we will be joined by Protect Our Winters for "Climbing and Climate". A moderated discussion on how the climbing community can come together to protect the places we love. POW athlete Graham Zimmerman will moderate and will join Majka Burhardt, Anne Gilbert Chase and Dr Alix Contosta of UNH Earth Systems Research Center for a stoke filled conversation. We cannot wait.

“Here we have Rob ‘The Piz Meister’ Pizem—can I just say what a hero he is? In this photo from my book CRACK CLIMBING: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE, we see him using a form of ‘Squished Fist’ technique, which is a way to make your fist jams smaller. There are a number of ways to do this, from changing the shape of the hand before you place it inside the crack, to a variety of different twists that you can do when it’s inserted.
“I remember the first time I came across Piz was in a film extra on Reel Rock called ‘Desert Rats.’ He was climbing and working on some crazy roof crack projects in Canyonlands National Park. Little did I know back then, that this would be the place that I would eventually visit many times and develop many of the skills and techniques that have enabled me to write this book in such a comprehensive way. You can’t hide from it in this location—every route is splitter and every route is horizontal—if you can’t jam, well…you better learn quickly.” [Photo] Andrew Burr @andrew_burr @mtnbooks @petewhittaker01 @rob_pizem
This week as part of the #alpinistcommunityproject, we're sharing work from Pete Whittaker to discuss his new book, CRACK CLIMBING: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE. He writes, “‘I started this project with one goal in mind—to provide a resource of crack climbing knowledge…I hope that everyone who picks up the book—even the very best climbers in the world—can learn something.’”
This is his sixth post.
