Here is a story about a short and quiet man. And yet it is not a short and quiet story. Roger’s escapades have reached lofty heights and his achievements are inspirational. From being an underachiever at school, he excelled at civil engineering and in later years ran his own tour guiding business.
In the 1960s and 70s he climbed every peak in New Zealand over 10,000 feet and then converted to metric and got up more 3000-metre peaks. He did the first ascent of the unclimbed Yerupajá Norte with Graeme Dingle in 1968, being the northern summit of Yerupajá Grande, the second-highest peak in the Peruvian Andes. For over 50 years he has been involved in Search and Rescue, including the 1979 Erebus recovery in which he was an advisor to Police Headquarters. He received the NZ Order of Merit in the New Year Honours List 2007 for services to Search and Rescue.
