I spent some of this year editing Andy Kirkpatrick's new book Cold Wars, published by those nice people at Vertebrate Publishing who help me out with this site, and so have that interesting dual perspective of working with someone and then seeing their public performances. Andy has a very successful schtick which goes down very well on the road and at festivals of the madcap, zany adventurer, so successful that it's easy to overlook the fact that he is very bright and knows what he's doing. This neat package from Dave Gill catches that cooly intelligent look Andy can give you, which he presumably reserves for those victims who realise in horror, and too late, that they have been outwitted. Shows you – and me – what new media can do for climbing. If only there was some money out there.
