E3 hands free climbing with Johnny Dawes

Warmest greetings from a baltic but sunny day in Bristol

For anyone interested here's a wee 3 minute video about my friend Johnny Dawes and his attempt to try a hands free "walk" up the Roaches lower tier classic called Chalkstorm on a scorching hot day last summer in the Peak District. Johnny was one of the greatest rock climbers in the world during the 1980's and now in his mid 50's still has some amazing skills...

Featuring aerial footage of one of the greatest gritstone crags with one of the UK's greatest ever climbers, sit back and marvel at some jedi balance, ninja footwork and magician movement!



All constructive feedback welcome, please feel free to share and hopefully it will brighten up your day accompanied with a brew and biscuit!

Cheers

Dave

Great vid Dave, it's very good documented and set in scene, the drone shots are great as the reveal the goal.
With the voiceover and the mystic music you build up a good suspense and as I saw the red marked route it seems to be impossible to make it without hands- so big respect for Johnny.
With your vids I have a good start in the day (checking the forums in the morning) so keep on going.
