The Crucifix Project is Pete Whittaker and Tom Randall’s next-level roof crack out in Canyonlands, Utah, that they’ve spent several trips to the area piecing together. While it remains a project, in 2017 the pair—known world-over as the Wide Boyz—made the first ascent of a variation with the same finish but an easier start and dubbed it the Cruzifix (5.14a).

Some of you will remember the video of Tom Randall’s epic fall on the Crucifix Project that made the rounds a few years ago, and now for this Weekend Whipper we’ve got a clip of Pete with a similar winger while trying Cruzifix.

This footage taken by Mike Hutton shows the doozy of a fall Pete took. To make sure the fall would be safe, “Tom and Pete did a sensible bag drop test first to test the lob,” Hutton told us.

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
