Join OutdoorLads for an evening with the Climbing Legend : Andy Kirkpatrick

Andy Kirkpatrick is a top British mountaineer, big-wall climber and winter expedition specialist, Andy has soloed the most difficult routes in the world. A leading expert on climbing gear, Andy is also an award-winning author and a film-maker with a tremendous ability to captivate any audience with his unique brand of motivational story-telling.

Andy has scaled Yosemite's El Capitan - one of the hardest walls in America - over 24 times, including three solo ascents, and a one-day ascent (18h), as well as climbing it with a paraplegic climber, his teenage daughter and a blind friend. One of these ascents was a 12 day solo of the Reticent Wall, viewed at the time as perhaps the hardest climb of its type in the world, and the subject of his award-winning book Psychovertical.

Only Hull’s second best climber, comedian Andy Kirkpatrick, could take you on a journey from minus fifty degrees to plus fifty, from gun battles in Nairobi, deportation, battles with baboons, elephants and bears, to mundane things like climbing big walls and bigger mountains!
