Mike was a real pioneer.
He was friendly, kind, fun to be around and free with his knowledge of climbs and cliffs.
He climbed with the best (and some say the worst as well!) and in passing leaves many good friends and awestruck seconds.

BA is correct to point out the quality and variety of climbs that Mike put up at Arapiles and in the Grampians but perhaps even more significant may be his part in the first ascent of the North Wall at Buffalo (Emperor) and the uber classics Monarch and Caligula. He climbed with ease, grace, humour, spirit and style.
Victorian climbers in particular will always remain in his debt. Certain rapscallions that he imprisoned in his capacity as a Victorian magistrate may not feel that way.
