Johnny Dawes 'Full Of Myself' Interview

Report by planetFear
Tuesday 15th January 2013

Johnny Dawes is one of the most iconic figures of the British rock climbing scene, he is responsible for adding new tiers to the British rock climbing grade system with ascents such as 'Indian Face' E9 6c, on Cloggy and the infamous and terrifying Gaia E8 6c at Black Rocks. His list of first ascents spans over a decade of hard, cutting edge climbing.

 John Horscroft sat down with Johnny to talk about his new book 'Full Of Myself'

 

 

  "Written with devoted passion and brutal honesty, Full of Myself lays bare Johnny's bipolar mix of privilege and pain, wizardry and dysfunction. Master of friction and momentum, the living embodiment of poetry in motion turns his hand to pen with great effect."
Leo Houlding

"It's brilliant - frank, funny, telling his full life story, not just the climbing. And the climbing accounts are riveting as well. A great read from cover to cover."
Sir Chris Bonington

"Johnny always seemed some kind of freak from the very first picture of him I ever saw. I could see positive freakiness that made him go out of the ordinary, to climb those things that must be admired and that should inspire many to come."Adam Ondra
