Mountain Guide

I am originally from Tokoroa, New Zealand, but I'm now based in Interlaken, Switzerland. I started rock climbing at 19 years and moved on to alpine climbing two years later.

I began guiding in 2003 and am now a fully qualified IFMGA Climbing and Ski Guide. Apart from having extensive experience in New Zealand's Southern Alps, I also know the European Alps very well.

When guiding, I enjoy helping people achieve their dreams: whether it is climbing a summit or acquiring the skills to travel in the mountains. I like watching the dawn turn into a sunrise high on a summit when most people are still asleep and, when rock climbing, I enjoy unlocking a sequence that seemed impossible at first.

When not climbing, I like to ski long, steep, deep powder runs.

What people are saying about Tim



Tim was a great guide.  I had an amazing time and experienced some great routes.  We packed in a lot of different styles of climbing for a single day trip, and Tim did a wonderful job of selecting routes that would challenge me while keeping them obtainable and exciting.  He also took time to provide training in areas I have been working on.  He covered lead climbing techniques as well as proper safety measures.  I highly recommend Tim as a guide, and hope there’s a chance to climb with him in the future.  I expect I’ll be returning to Interlaken and will plan for more days of climbing when I do.
