Cocker began his climbing career in the UK and brought
his skills to Australia becoming one of the then 'leading
edge' rock climbers. Australia in the 1970's began its
forays into the Himalayas and as the then President
of the ANU Mountaineering Club Peter led one of the
first successful expeditions, the 1978 Dunagiri ascent
by Tim McCartney Snape. The Dunagiri Expedition put
Australia on the 'serious Himalayan mountaineering'
map, the expedition a positive primer and link in the
chain leading to Tim and Lincoln Hall to go on and ascend
Everest. Peter returned to his 'normal' life working
climbing on weekends and more recently, guiding and
instructing rock climbing in the Snowy Mountains. Peter
has a long history of nurturing and guiding young people
in their rock climbing and mountain skills and enjoys
taking individuals, groups, families and school groups
walking and climbing in the Snowy mountains.
Peter plans to open some of the sweetest summer climbing
routes for all levels of experience with spectacular
abseils or simply walk down through the wildflowers.
