Johnny Dawes - Full of Myself
“I'm much better than people can understand. I'm a much better climber than people realize!” - Johnny Dawes
A must read for any climber - this is the idiosyncratic autobiography of one of Britains most enigmatic climbers.
Johnny Dawes was at the height of his powers in the 1980's when he claimed the first ascent of Indian Face, but he was an active climber for a long time before and after.
Dawes' unusually florid use of the English language paints a vivid picture of his life, and the scene he operated in, the book is somewhat bizarrely divided between his love for automobiles, his supreme talent for dynamic climbing, and no small part on climbing philosophy.
But hey, what's an autobiography without a little character?
