A Walk on the Wild Side

A wee video about legendary climber, showman and all round nice guy Johnny Dawes and his attempt to try a hands free "walk" up Lundy island's classic climb called "The Devil's Slide". Featuring some aerial drone footage and some hands free sorcery by one of the UK's greatest ever climbers, sit back and take a walk on the wild slide!

Hey Wanderer100 thanks for taking the to post some kind feedback and the Devil's Slide, amongst all the other amazing climbing on offer on the magical Lundy Island is well making the effort to get the MS Oldenberg ferry over! Incidentally I only stumbled across this other thread about my wee video recently so I guess for the sake of completeness here it is:https://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=674950&v=1#x8684553 Cheers Dave

Hi Dave I posted the other thread, hope you don't mind. It's really nice to see such high quality films being made about UK routes in grades that most people can have a go at. Really nice pieces of film making.

Hi GP many thanks for your kind words and as Oscar Wilde is reputed to have said, all publicity is good publicity! My next video is nearly finished so look out for the Armorican One Armed Bandit coming soon... :-) Cheers Dave
