Andy Kirkpatrick is Doctor Gear at

Andy Kirkpatrick is heading up a new article series on UKClimbing: Andy Kirkpatrick's Doctor Gear.

Read the first one here: Doctor Gear

Andy, who has previously worked as gear editor for magazines such as Climb, Climber and High, is now sharing his knowledge through and will be working on this interactive series - offering tips and advice on gear, from the simple to the specialist. If you have a question for Andy, you can ask it on this Premier Post.

Andy is the third best climber ever to come out of Hull (John Redhead and Joe Tasker pipping him at the post), and is as well known for his nerdy knowledge of gear, as his ability to climb slowly up hard routes.

He has just written his first book 'Psychovertical'.
