On top of the world! Miss Alex Jones and Andy Kirkpatrick
Many of you will have watched the ONE SHOW TV presenter Alex Jones climb the 1200ft Moonlight Buttress with world class climber Andy Kirkpatrick this week. If not – watch the gripping footage above. The three day climb, with two nights on a port-a-ledge, was Alex’s introduction to climbing. Not a bad first route……. She even celebrated her birthday in this alien vertical world.
The climb has so far raised over £1,231,476 for Sports Relief and its community and charitable work in the UK and around the world. Text Alex to 70005 to donate £5 or visit www.sportsrelief.com
Andy is not only one of world’s finest climbers but he also renowned for his humour and eccentricity – so I’m sure he kept Alex amused!
You can see and hear Andy at the CAN events ‘First on the Continents’ Nov 27th – 30th 2014, which celebrate great climbs on all seven of the world’s continents. Andy is talking about his first ascent of the Ulvetanna Ridge in Antarctica- one of the globes most dramatic climbing locations.
