Dan Johnson Rock Climbing

Dan Johnson is a rock climber from Flamborough, Ontario – he’s been climbing for 14 years. Today we have a rock climbing video for you called “One of us Piece”. It was nominated for Online Video Production at the 2010 Ontario Newspaper Award and Single Multimedia in the 2010 National Pictures of the Year by the News Photographers Association of Canada.

Johnson talks about the focus needed to climb and how a lot of the problems you face on a rock are not physical, but mental.. the “anvil of doubt” as he calls it. You have to stay in climbing mode and not think about the fear of falling. All climbers will fall. If you’re not falling, not you’re climbing high enough.
