Andy Kirkpatrik on himself
Я долго не мог понять, чем отличаются mountaineer и alpinist. Киркпатрик объяснил в своей смешной манере:
I’ve climbed around the world, both as a free climber (I don’t just aid climb!), mixed and ice climber, mountaineer and alpinist (one sleeps in a tent, the other on his mate’s knee) and explorer type (that means an expedition without any summits… which is also most mountaineering expeditions).
