An in­ter­na­tion­ally qual­i­fied (IFMGA) climb­ing and ski guide for 25 years, Mark spe­cialises in tours to Antarc­tica, Green­land, Kash­mir and other re­mote cor­ners of the globe. He has guided 20 ex­pe­di­tions to the Hi­malaya, in­clud­ing sum­mit­ing Mt Ever­est, and a fur­ther 11 to Antarc­tica. He says the trip de­scribed in this is­sue was the hard­est thing he ever did: “I have changed Leo [Hould­ing’s] caller ID to ‘Do Not An­swer’,” he says. He is also Fes­ti­val Direc­tor of the NZ Moun­tain Film Fes­ti­val. www.ki­wiskigu­ide.com
