I have had long standing interest in music (playing piano to 4th grade, 3 years as 2nd violin in school orchestra, guitar), art (figure, portrait and landscape drawing and painting), photography, languages (translating ability in French, German, Spanish and Russian), sailing (various small boats, two seasons as forward hand on a racing Dragon class sloop, 1968-1969) and surfboard riding (1964-1968). I have also had many seasons of snow and ice climbing, caving, bush-walking, canoeing, rock climbing and ski touring. Notable caving expeditions include Colong (1968), Church Creek (1970) and Tuglow (1969) all in New South Wales. Notable long walks include Colong (1068), Federation Peak (Tasmania, 1972), Western Arthurs (Tasmania, 1973), and multi-day ski tours include Mts Feather and Bogong (Victoria, 1974, 1976), Kosciusko and Twynam (New South Wales, 1975), Jagungal (New South Wales, 1973), and Crater Lake (Oregon, 1982). My major climbs include “Cornerstone rib” on Crater Bluff (Warrumbungle Mountains, New South Wales, Australia, 1976), Mts. Aspiring, Avalanche, Tutoko, Annan, Tapuaneku, Ruapehu (New Zealand, 1973-1977), Huamanripayoc (Cordillera Vilcabamba, Peru, 1978), Longs Peak (north face, winter ascent, Colorado, U.S.A., 1978), Middle, South and Grand Tetons (Wyoming, U.S.A., 1979), Mt. Blanc (France, 1980), Matterhorn (Switzerland, 1980), Middle Sister (Oregon winter ascent, 1981) and Mt Jefferson (Oregon 1981), Mt.
