This is a photo of me on the Nevis, my second out of three jumps....called the "Thrillogy". My first jump was quite a wake up call in the morning, because I was dunked into the icy cold river. But the Nevis was the one that took the cake, being 440ft.... a nice 8.5 seconds of free falling! What a RUSH!


This is a photo of me doing my best Superman impression off the Nevis!

Random Mts.

This is a photo of some random mountains on my drive to Wanaka.


This is a photo of me ice climbing on Franz Josef Glacier on the west coast of NZ! The climbing was sweet, and I really would like to do it again.

Pancake Rocks

This is a photo of the Pancake rocks. This is just one of the gems that the west coast possesses in it's wide array of natural beauty.


This is me getting started for the sixth and final time on my project "Responsible Lunges" aussie grade 25! I was stoked to finally get this bad boy, after working out all the crux moves.

Paynes Ford

This is a shot of me on a climb called 10-80! I know, I know..I am a show off but how often do you get to pull a no-hands rest on a roof. What a great climb with an amazing view of the country side. I was in Paynes for about a week, which is at the northern most point of the south island. I stayed at the Hang Dog campground where I met some really cool people to climb with!


A little deep water soloing! We found this great roof on the river to do a little soloing after climbing. What a refreshing way to end the day.


This is just a little taste of the true beauty of NZ.
