Weekend Whipper: The Perils of Bad Gear and Poor Instruction


Not everyone who loves to climb and wants to learn the sport has the invaluable benefits of receiving proper instruction or the availability of good gear. In this Weekend Whipper, we witness a climber attempt a route on the hill of Susunia, in West Bengal, India. Unfortunately, he has inadequate gear including a pair of sneakers for climbing shoes. Yet, despite his obvious disadvantages, he runs it out and pushes for the top, only to survive a VERY close call.
