Author, Alpinist and Big Wall climber Andy Kirkpatrick delivered a climbing skills class to a number of CYCC members at Cork's Mardyke Arena on December 9th. Andy demonstrated a variety of prussick and jumar techniqiues to our young climbers who set about scaling the ropes equipped with everything short of a haul bag!

Andy was in Cork as part of his Cold Wars book tour.

Many thanks to Andy from all at the club for taking the time to train our climbers and we look forward to his next visit to Cork.
