Unstoppable, hilarious, raconteur and mountaineer extraordinaire, Andy K returns to the Rucksack Club winter lecture series.

Following his successful ‘Psychovertical’, ‘When Hell Freezes Over’ and ‘Off the Wall’ UK theatre tours, the multi-faceted, internationally acclaimed mountaineer and comedian Andy Kirkpatrick is the club’s November guest at the Heatons Sports Club. This time Andy takes a slightly different tack, talking about his new book ‘Cold Wars’, a year in the writing, and the follow up to his best-selling book ‘Psychovertical’.

Telling stories behind the climbs, as well as reading from the book and showing images and film, these smaller, more intimate talks retain the same level of humour, but also are perhaps a more honest window into the world of extreme climbing. Tales include many cold climbs, including his 15-day winter ascent of the Lafaille Route on the Petit Dru, a 1000m pillar in the Alps considered to be one of the most difficult climbs in Europe. Andy will be happy to sign any books on the night.

Lecture start time: 7.30pm

Rucksack Club members and under 18’s: £4.00
Non-members and guests welcome: £8.00

The evening will include a prize draw raffle.
