VIDEO: Johnny Dawes: No-Handed Climbing Part 2

It's no secret that British climbing legend Johnny Dawes is ironically pretty 'handy' when it comes to no-handed climbing. A master of balance and momentum, Johnny can walk up climbs that many of us find challenging enough using our hands and feet. 

In this second video by Wayne Sharrocks documenting Johnny's no-handed practise, we see Johnny attempting a foot-only ascent of Permutation Rib E1 5c at Caley, aptly naming his no-handed version Perambulation Ridge.

"I then sort of turn up the microscopy to look at the holds a lot better and then work out if I have to add grip to them, how I'm going to add grip to them."

Watch the first video here.
