Kim Csizmazia climbing the 2nd ascent of one of the hardest offwidth cracks in the world, Trench Warfare, in Little Cottonwood Canyon, Utah. The clip was shot 1997. Kim paved the road for hard “manly” climbing in the 90’s.

Johnny Woodward’s 1995 nails-hard crack climb is a classic offwidth benchmark, known as one of the hardest cracks in the world. Don’t you wish climbing videos were still this rad?
