After working in the outdoor industry for over 25 years as an alpine guide, and industrial abseiler, Mark turned his sights closer to home and developed Wildwire with the vision of creating an exciting adventure operation that is accessible and showcases what he loves so much about Wanaka.
Mark’s experience includes leading an extensive amount of mountaineering expeditions in the Himalayas, Canada, Kyrgyzstan, South America, Antarctica and New Zealand. (Pretty much everywhere!)
When asked what he likes most about Wildwire… he replied, “having the opportunity to introduce people with no prior climbing experience to the vertical world in a safe and exciting way.”
Although Mark is very dedicated to keeping his athletic figure on point, he can be found indulging in the odd one or two Whiskeys from time to time.
