Andy Kirkpatrick


Andy Kirkpatrick is recognized as one of the nation’s most well achieved big mountaineers and big wall climbers. Best known for scaling America’s most challenging wall – Yosemite’s El Capitan, over ten times, Andy’s trained experience of overcoming adversity is next to none, allowing him to deliver exceptional talks as a leadership speaker.

Andy is also well recognised for his expeditions to the savage spires of Patagonia, all of which have taken place in ice cold depth of the winter season, a season in which very few have ever ventured or returned from unscathed! These climbs include many first winter ascents, and some of the most spine shivering epic stories you will ever hear. The tales from these expeditions have become some of the classic modern climbing tales, often redefining the words ’danger’ and ’epic’, and demonstrating that British climbers are still leading the way in dangerous sports climbing.

Andy’s biggest strength is his ability to talk as an evening speaker about his climbs and his life in a truly honest way that is accessible to the non-climber. Talking about what moves him to do things that many would consider suicidal, and more importantly where he finds the powerful inspiration to defeat the seemingly impossible.

Andy brings a sharp wit to his talks, creating an incredible mix that will both inspire and entertain, giving presentations as a leadership speaker that will be talked about for days and months to come. Andy’s main focus is breaking through mental blocks, learning how to be successful when the odds seem to be outrageously out of favour, and life lessons learnt at the sharp end.
