I've now managed to climb four Pacific Highpoints: Australia, Malaysia, Vanuatu and now Fiji. I'm not quite sure why I started and if or when I'll ever stop.
Yet each time I've managed to summit another peak, I get the buzz and already start planning the next trip. Of course, at about the same time, my girlfriend is cursing and muttering under her breath and swearing that this mountain will be the last I drag her up. Somehow we've managed to stay together and somehow I've managed to convince her to climb yet another peak.
Unlike some of the other mountains around the world, the peaks of the Pacific aren't quite the craggy, barren, high-altitude climbs as may be experienced elsewhere. Yet they do provide their own set of challenges. Often isolated and seldom climbed, the Pacific highpoints are often hot, humid and through dense rainfrest. And at the end of the day, they are undisputedley the highest point around. And for this reason alone, I keep on coming back.
No doubt, if you are reading this, then you know what I'm talking about.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy the site. Feel free to shoot me a message. I'll always respond.
And who knows, perhaps I'll see you atop a mountain one day!!!
