Pete Whittaker’s BATTLE To Send Recovery Drink
One of the hardest crack climbs in the world, Recovery Drink on the Profile Wall in Jøssingfjord, Norway has attracted some of the biggest hitters in the trad game over the years...with few successes.
In 2013, Nico Favresse made the first ascent of Recovery Drink. Daniel Jung of Germany bagged the second ascent in 2018. With a brutal training regime and his partner in crime Tom Randall to work the route with, Pete Whittaker dediated his climbing trips to making the third (or possibly fourth) ascent of Recovery Drink 8c+ (5.14c) .
