Chris Webb Parsons climbing training in England
Video of Chris Webb Parsons during his training on the gritstone at Burbage and in England's gyms.
Last year his best result was 6th palce in Vail. In the hope of being able to improve on this, the Australian climber Chris Webb Parsons - famous above all for the second ascent of Dai Koyamada's 2004 testpiece The Wheel of Life (8C) at the Hollow Mountain Cave in the Grampians - has now moved to Britain with a view to preparing himself for the 2012 Bouldering World Cup. The video shows a typical day, bouldering on the gritstone at Burbage and training in one of the numerous gyms in England's climbing mecca, Sheffield.
