Mostly Paragliding, but some climbing & tramping Date Climbed: Nov 15, 1960
I was born in NZ more years ago than I'd care to remember but didn't live there properly until 1992-1998. I'd climbed Mt Murchison in 1982 with a cousin, Anne-Thea - but most spectacular experience was winter (June) 1994 when I made a solo climb of Mt Rolleston and then a paraglider descent back down through a hole in the sea of cloud below - at sunset. I did a lot of paragliding at various places in southern Alps and Banks Peninsular - and climbed a few peaks in process - only one (Mount Fyffe) which has a page on SP at the moment.
Hopefully some kiwis will get active on this site and start posting - they have some fantastic stuff to share down there - sadly I don't have enough material.
