Andy Kirkpatrick

The US magazine Climbing once described Andy as a climber with a “strange penchant for the long, the cold and the difficult".........

..... with a reputation “for seeking out routes where the danger is real, and the return is questionable, pushing himself on some of the hardest walls and faces in the Alps and beyond, sometimes with partners and sometimes alone.” Andy has climbed El Cap 29 times (solo three times, and twice in a day), skied across Greenland, made three winter ascents of the Dru in Chamonix (including #100 in 'Mont Blanc - The Finest Routes’), climbed the Troll wall in winter, and a new route on Ulvertanna in Antartica, described as the 'hardest mountain in the world’.

After a successful crowdfunding campaign, there is a film being made about Andy and his life, based on his best selling book 'Psycovertical'
