Good skills - life in the old dog yet ;)
Here's Johnny on an 8a+ yesterday, the little sport dogger: http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=175950
Love the name!
Go Johnny! Good to see him back on top of his game and looking leaner and meaner!
I know. :-)
"At one point I had to sort of layback on the cheek of my face"...superb! What a legend!
Next we'll be hearing George Mallory has just done a winter ascent of K2.
Well done Jonny, super impressive!
He's looking quite well compared to that vid of him on Monkey See Monkey Do - where he's raging at his belayer for rope drag. Good to see there's life in the old dog!
Nice one Johnny.....but how's the book coming along :-)
Eagerly anticipating the book.
Awesome, Johnny is on it! New routes in Cornwall, in Wales, and on Kent Sandstone :)
dont think he went to syria as he was definately at cheedale cornice on saturday.
Amazing effort Johnny. He is pretty inspirational to watch climbing, hopefully we will see him on some E9s and 10s soon!? :)
He's certainly looking trimmer than in that awful Monkey See DVD.
It looked like he was fattening up to become a winter climber.
