Andy Kirkpatrick: WHAT HAVE I LEARNED?

A Higher Education

Andy Kirkpatrick is a man who needs little introduction.  An outdoor antihero with a penchant for the longest and coldest ascents in the world.  His motivations are famously introspective, climbing to push internal barriers instead of for glory or conquest.

Kicking off on Friday 02 Feb, the 29-date speaking tour in which the man described as 'The Ranulph Fiennes of British climbing' by the BBC's John Humphrys shares the lessons he has learned from forty years in the vanguard of Big Wall climbing.  Andy talks entertainingly about life, love, death, and the un-glamorous realities of forging your own path through his unique prism of experience.

'A Higher Education' promises to provide a unique insight into the mind of one of the country's most preeminent explorers of the vertical world.
