Picture of Nick AllenGuest speaker - Nick Allen

Nick Allen, based at Massey University in Palmerston North, is a passionate tramper and climber. Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 25, Nick thought that his climbing dreams were over. Six years on and with the help of rehabilitation specialists and Massey’s School of Sport and Exercise, Nick has been able to get back outdoors, climbing and tramping. Late last year, Nick successfully summited Island Peak (6,189m) in Nepal. Nick is also passionate about helping others and has set up a scholarship fund, administered by Multiple Sclerosis NZ, to help others with MS overcome the obstacles that prevent them from getting outdoors. When he is not climbing or working, Nick is a PhD student, looking at concepts of subjectivity in the New Zealand Alpine Journal.
