I wrote some stuff about the man that might be of interest.

That's fantastic, a proper tribute. My only contact with Andy was via email, reporting new routes. He was always prompt and helpful. Their was a thing when he wouldn't accept one of our Caithness route names, we had some tit for tat. We argued the point but he was adamant. He was wrong but hey ho, I love his history and contribution to Scottish climbing so that was that.

Thanks Colin. I knew Andy for many years and were near neighbours in Aberdeen & later Boat of Garten although we rarely shared a rope. Its going to be strange going back to Boat without him being there.

What did you want to call it?

He steered me an a friend away from our first choice of a name for a new route back in the early 90s (an exchange of letters on SMC headed notepaper on his part!). In that case we accepted that the name could possibly be offensive to some and changed it for a more classic sounding one quite happily.
