By Jay Oram

Just who is Andy Kirkpatrick and what has Alex Jones let herself in for?

Andyk front

We've known Andy for a number of years now and when it comes to big wall climbing he knows it all. Check out Andy's Tweets to get an overall picture of the character we know and love......

A loving father who has taken his daughter on a big wall - So you know Alex is in safe hands.

 

 

Well known for his tidyness and cleanliness.....

 

 

Andy is honest, forthcoming, but also a genuinely nice guy....

 

 

Although he can't always be relied upon for being 'PC' and he has this thing going on with Bear Grylls?

 

But when it comes to the crunch he's someone to rely on and always the proffesional. 

 

 

 

To keep up with Alex Jones' Sport Relief challenge, follow her @missalexjones and Andy @psychovertical on Twitter or search for the hashtag #AlexVSRock. We will be keeping a close eye on proceedings and watching for the Alpkit logo on television!
