About the Author

Andy Pollitt was born in Prestatyn, North Wales, on 26 October 1963. He grew up in Dyserth village and was introduced to climbing at school by Andy Boorman, one of his school teachers. He was immediately hooked, and the two Andys would go on to become lifelong friends. Following his apprenticeship, and over the course of the eighties and early nineties, Andy Pollitt went on to become one of Britain's most iconic climbers, pushing standards with friends Jerry Moffatt, Martin 'Basher' Atkinson and others. He made early repeats of legendary routes - such as John Redhead's The Bells, The Bells! on Gogarth's North Stack Wall - and cutting-edge first ascents of his own, including The Hollow Man on North Stack, and Knockin' on Heaven's Door on Peak District gritstone. In 1992, after forty-four days of attempts spread over three trips to Australia across two years, he finally redpointed Wolfgang Gullich's route Punks in the Gym (the world's first F8b+) at Mount Arapiles, and then immediately gave up climbing - for good. Andy has lived in Melbourne, Australia, since 1993 where he has enjoyed a successful career in the rope access industry.
