Inspired by the adventures of Sir Edmund Hillary on Mount Everest and in the Antarctic, Peter has been climbing in the mountains and on rock for over 40 years. He has achieved a number of first ascents in the Himalayas and in the New Zealand Alps. In recent years, Peter has summited both Mount Everest and Mount Denali. He continues to climb professionally and personally.

A pharmacist, Peter works as a health and safety auditor and technical expert for the NZ Adventure Activity industry. He also develops, coordinates and delivers climbing and instruction programs for “committed” alpinists and rock climbers.
