Quick Overview

Pete is going to be at the Gateway in Shrewsbury for High Sports talking about his recent exploits on El Capitan and it promises to be a funny, exciting and unmissable event!


Pete Whittaker made the first all-free solo ascent of El Capitan, Yosemite in a day, using rope solo techniques on the 10th November 2016. Pete climbed the classic 37-pitch Freerider 5.12d in just 20 hours and 6 minutes, which he flashed in 2014. Only two previous attempts to rope solo El Capitan 'all-free' have ever been made, the records via Freerider standing at 7 days and 4 days by Stéphane Perron and Jorg Verhoeven respectively.


Having only taken up rope soloing seriously this year, Pete has learned and mastered the relevant skills and techniques incredibly quickly.


This is one off lecture that we have put on in addition to our 2016/17 Winter Lecture Series.
