Winner of the 2016  Banff Mountain Book Award for Guidebook

 

'1001 Climbing Tips is a refreshing take on the climbing guide genre. Irreverent, it has a laugh on virtually every page, but also some extremely useful advise and some points of genuine interest. The panel are grateful for tip 974 "Never drink your own urine"'

- Paul Pritchard, 2016 Banff Mountain Book Competition Jury

 

'1001 Climbing Tips had me laughing out loud in places, which I never thought possible for this genre of book. A tremendous resource that should be an essential addition to every climber's loo-library'

- Ian Parnell, Climb magazine

 

Imagine 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.

 

This is no regular instruction manual - it's much more useful than that. This 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. It's for anyone who hangs off stuff, or just hangs around in the mountains. 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.
