Description

"Andy is one of the funniest of Britain's top climbers and represents what is the best in modern British climbing: boldness, innovation, sense of humour, irreverence, commitment, and an appetite for risk." -- Chris Bonnington In this brilliant sequel to his award-winning debut, Psychovertical, Andy Kirkpatrick has achieved his life's ambition to become one of the world's leading climbers. Pushing himself to new extremes, he embarks on his toughest climbs yet -- on big walls in the Alps and Patagonia -- in the depths of winter. Kirkpatrick has more success, but the savagery and danger of these encounters comes at huge personal cost. Questioning his commitment to his chosen craft, Kirkpatrick is torn between family life and the dangerous path he has chosen. Written with his trademark wit and honesty, Cold Wars is another gripping account of modern adventure. Readers on Amazon.co.uk give Cold Wars, *****show more
