- Climbers – who's read Johnny Dawes' book?
Just finished reading Full of Myself. I stopped climbing regularly a few years back and it’s inspired me to get back into it. He manages to capture the experience of climbing like no one else I’ve ever read.
However, I imagine it would be a tough read for anyone who a) isn’t a climber and b) doesn’t already know a fair amount about him and the climbing scene in the 80s.
There’s a lot of his unique bonkersness in there. Marvellous.Posted 4 years agochickenmanSubscriber
I really enjoyed it; I liked his use of language and the way he’s not shy about admitting he was a wee bit arrogant when he was younger.Posted 4 years ago
I was also the owner of the red bobble hat he borrowed (softcore helmet!)to climb “Cure for a sick mind” (I was getting repeatedly spat off the crux of “Cystitis by proxy” that day and decided I never wanted to climb on slate ever again!)…fame at last!
