Epic hang battle against parkour crew: Pete Whittaker manages 1h 4min

A year ago, professional climber Pete Whittaker mercilessly dismantled Toby Segar's parkour crew in a 7 vs. 1 last-man hanging battle. Now there is a rematch with an exciting outcome. Spoiler: Pete was able to hang on the pole for over an hour!

The rules of Last Man Hanging are quickly explained: Whoever can hold on to a pole for the longest time wins, whoever drops falls - at least in this case - into the cold water. For the second time Pete Whittaker faced the ultimate challenge and competed alone against the parkour professionals from Storror.

In this epic battle, Pete Whittaker once again demonstrated his incredible grip strength: he was able to hold on for over an hour. You can find out in the video whether this was enough to win and which joker his opponents used.
