  1. HOLY CRAP !! Watching him climb with just his feet, at app 1.45, it reminded me……I've thought how the greatest climber isn't chameleons, or spiders…..they've got the coolest 'gear'. Snakes, with the least amount of 'gear', still climb well.

  2. Haha I know Johnny pretty well he's fuckin hilarious! :L pretty laid back when you meet him :p remember him teaching me how to do all these sick ass balancing tricks when I was a kid at my mates

  3. I was at the international BMC youth meet 1987 at Hathersage. Jerry Moffat was a star giving everyone advice. Johnny didn't seem much interested in anyone but the  elite clique. He is a weird f****r that's for sure very selfish orientated. Suppose that's the way you need to be.
