Andy Kirkpatrick’s lecture series

I’ve just spent a great evening at one of Andy Kirkpatrick’s lectures. If you haven’t heard him before, here is a teaser:

Andy’s talks are definitely not for those easily offended, those who want to hear a “proper” climbing talk, or Bear Grylls. But if you’re not put off yet you’ll enjoy some of these gems from his talk:

  • Climbing is like masturbation: fun to do but no-one wants to hear you talk about it
  • If you do scary shit people think that you are brave
  • I don’t look like a climber: I look like a bin man.

I highly recommend you go and watch Andy speak. Nationwide tour dates here.
