I'm out there most weekends. I have a background in climbing and instruction as well.
Most of my tramping is with my favourite tramping buddy, my partner, Frank King. I have also lead and go on trips with the CTC and the PTC when Frank's not available.
I am a member of the Remote Huts group, Permolat and the DoC User Group. Frank and I also have cut, permolatted and continue to maintain 10 tracks in Canterbury and on the west side of the main divide.
