Keith Scott is a Canberra-based climber, skier and walker. He is a member of Canberra Climbing Association
and the New Zealand Alpine Club.
He has climbed in New Zealand’s Mt Cook region on a number of occasions, including ascents of Mt Tasman and Malte Brun, and has been a member
of two mountaineering expeditions to the Himalayas. He was a member of a private expedition that completed a first ascent of a 6500m peak in the
Yangma region of north-eastern Nepal in 2010 and a private expedition to Baruntse (reaching 6800m) in 2015.
Keith has been walking and skiing in the NSW Snowy Mountains for more than 20 years. In 2018 and 2019, with support from the NSW National Parks
and Wildlife Service, he organised a team of volunteers, including legendary mountaineer Tim Macartney-Snape, to revitalise the Hannels Spur
walking track from its base at Geehi Flat on the western side of the Snowy Mountains to the top of the Main Range. Keith has walked the track
more than 20 times over more than 10 years, including multiple ascents in winter.
Keith has travelled extensively, as a former journalist and privately, including to East Antarctica. He has written a number of articles for outdoor
magazines, including Wild, The Climber and the New Zealand Alpine Journal. His articles have included a feature and “track notes” on Hannels Spur
(Wild, September-October 2017) and a feature on the philosophy of solo travel, based on an eight-day, 250km walk from Tharwa in the ACT to Guthega
ski village (Wild, November-December 2015). He is the author of two books, including The Australian Geographic Book of Antarctica.
