Andy Cave (født 1966) er er en meget habil trad-klatrer og klippeklatrer, men er mest kjent for en rekke alpine bestigninger i Alpene, Himalaya, Alaska og Patagonia. Han ble nominert til Piolet d'Or for sin bestigning av nordveggen på Changabang. 

Han kommer til Romsdalen sammen med kona og datteren. De skal være i Norge i ca to uker.

– Det blir nok mest fokus på familieliv, sier lokal klatrer Trym Sæland til norsk-klatring.no.

Andy Cave skal vise bilder på Fjellfestivalen onsdag 11 juli.

Her er Andys egen ord om hva foredraget dreier seg om:

«I will give the Learning to Breathe lecture based on my first book, a journey from life as a miner to Changabang north face. This is what other organisers wrote:

'Andy Cave is a figurehead for British Mountaineering, with more than 20 years of desperate routes to his name. Aged just 20, he became one of the youngest mountaineers ever to climb the North Face of the Eiger, an achievement made all the more remarkable as just 4 years earlier, Andy was working 3000 feet underground at Grimethorpe Colliery in South Yorkshire.

Andy’s story of transition from Yorkshire coal miner to one of the UK’s best climbers is a gripping and compelling tale. Traditionally a gentleman's sport, a young coal miner from Barnsley was an unlikely mountaineer. His journey from the blackened grime of the pit to the breath-taking Himalayan summits is both moving and startling'.»
