He started when he was a teenager as a climber, establishing himself as ‘loose cannon’ of the sport, climbing bold solos and admits that there was an element of recklessness. He then transitioned into a mountain runner, focusing on orienteering based races, as well as big mountain routes. Shane talks about his dedication to the whatever adventure he sets his mind to.

We discuss the safety aspects he has developed and the environmental management that goes into these events, amongst other things.
