Our very own Hangar London Head Coach, Cris Fontano, is documenting his training to reach a V11/ 8A outdoor bouldering grade. Last year he had a go at the famous Jerry's Roof in North Wales.
Climbing Jerry's Roof has been an idea planted in my head since I first visited the Llanberis in North Wales a couple of years ago. At the time, it wasn’t a climb I would really consider trying, but over the last 2 years I've been going outdoors much more and taking my training up a notch, I thought this year was the right time to tackle this classic!
Check out the video below to see how I got on.
