teamBMC shared this video of legendary climber Johnny Dawes climbing Chalkstorm, an E3 (5.10d 6b) slab trad route. So what’s the big deal?
He never touches the wall with his hands! That’s right, this climb was entirely hands-free. What a great testament to the power of climbing with your feet. The route, Chalkstorm, is located at Roaches in the Peak District, England.
Surely this is an unusual “feet.” Criticism is welcome from all who have repeated this climb hands-free.
Marvel at some jedi balance, ninja footwork and magician movement! – teamBMC
