Back to all Back

Congratulations to Keith Moffat

Otago’s own Keith Moffat has recently been honoured as a Life Member of the New Zealand Alpine Club, an exclusive “club within a club” reserved for folks who have made outstanding contributions to mountaineering, rock climbing or to the Alpine Club itself.

Keith’s selection for the Life Member distinction was unanimous among the deciding committee, with NZAC president John Cocks citing that “Keith has made enormous contributions to NZAC over many years. The years of selfless voluntary service that he has contributed have included leading numerous climbing trips, hut maintenance projects, the organisation of National Climbing Camps and serving in a variety of roles on the Otago Section Committee. By way of his trip leadership, Keith has introduced and instructed dozens of novice climbers to the sport. He is particularly regarded for his good judgement and leadership skills, and humour.”

Those of us lucky enough to serve on the section committee alongside Keith are inclined to agree.

Ngā mihi nui me te aroha nui, Keith!
