Pat grew up on the east coast of Australia, where he spent his time climbing, hiking, swimming and playing Aussie Rules. After a long long year suffering through a chemistry degree, he swapped his beakers for some climbing shoes and left Australia behind to move to the Central North Island to follow his passion for the outdoors . He has since been drawn to Wanaka to start his career in our adventure playground and can be found guiding on Wildwire alllllll day every day this summer!
