Johnny Dawes no handed climbing II


The video of British rock climber Johnny Dawes attempting Permutation Rib E1 5c at Caley, England, without hands.

Johnny Dawes continues to explore the limits of climbing without hands. One of Great Britain’s most brilliant and influential rock climbers during the 1980’s and ’90’s has never lost sight of the importance of keeping climbing a “game” and his interest in moves that require an even greater body control remains high. The route that Dawes attempts in this video, Permutation Rib on Caley’s rough gritstone, isn’t as difficult as his legendary creations such as The Indian Face, Quarryman, Gaia, Braille Trail and End of the Affair to name just a few, but it’s always interesting - and instructive - to watch the master of slab climbing at this game of balance and rhythm.
