“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.
