Pre-order now: 1001 CLIMBING TIPS by Andy Kirkpatrick

1001 Climbing Tips by Andy KirkpatrickImagine an alien came down to Earth, stuck a probe into a climber’s brain – one who’d been climbing for over thirty years – and then transmogrified the contents into a big book of climbing tips. Well, 1001 Climbing Tips by Andy Kirkpatrick is just such a book.

Andy has a reputation for seeking out routes where the danger is real and the return questionable. His new paperback book is a massive collection of all those little tips that make a real difference when at the crag, in the mountains, or when you’re planning your next big trip. These tips are based on three decades of climbing obsession, as well as nineteen ascents of El Cap, numerous Alpine north faces, trips to the polar ice caps, and many other scary climbs and expeditions.

Published by climbing experts Vertebrate Publishing, 1001 Climbing Tips features a sharp aesthetic, top-quality production, and is full-colour throughout.
