Video: No Handed Climbing With Johnny Dawes


Many people will tell you that rock climbing is all about footwork. Johnny Dawes takes it to another level. Known for his bold ascents in the '80s, Dawes is now experimenting with no-handed climbing on technical slabs. These aren't 4th class walk-ups. The Stanage Edge route Dawes ascends here looks like it should be impossible to climb with feet alone, but he makes it happen with an impressive display of balance.
