How To: Giant Gear-Ripping Whipper

I recently dusted off some terrabytes and found some old classics.  In this new How To exclusive, Laban Swafford demonstrates the proper way to take a Giant Gear-Ripping Whipper.

Step 1:  Find a big, bad-ass route in North Carolina that has yet to be freed.  (Wear your hard hat for safety of course)

Step 2:  In an effort to preserve tradition based on local lore and ethics, clip your snatchlinks to a jumbled mess of aluminum and wire.  Repeat to yourself  “They’re bomber…”  or maybe “I won’t fall.”

Step 3:  Climb through the crux, over grip, get pumped and of course – take the whip.
