Psycho Vertical

Jen Randall

Explore the intricate mind of world-class climber Andy Kirkpatrick in this film inspired by his best-selling autobiography of the same name. Overcoming a tough upbringing in 1970s Hull, Andy has tested himself on some of the world’s longest and most difficult climbs totally alone, risking his life time and again.

Psycho Vertical follows Andy on an 18-day solo ascent of El Capitan, where life on the wall is precarious, tough and crushingly lonely, creating a raw and intimate portrait of one of climbing’s most controversial figures.
