Andy Kikpatrick's Cold Wars wins the 2012 Boardman-Tasker

Congrats to Andy Kirkpatrick on picking up his second BT award with Cold Wars at the Kendal Mountain Festival last night. I reviewed Cold Wars last year on this site-since shunted over to Footless Crow- and gave it a reserved thumbs up despite the book springing from an overworked genre within mountain writing. Actually, I was planning to write a longer feature about the Boardman Tasker award and its innate conservatism when it comes to evaluating mountain literature so watch this space.
