Nick Allen — Mastering Mountains, RNZ interview


As a child, Nick Allen had a map of Mount Everest pinned to the ceiling above his bed. It was always his dream to one day climb it. But after he developed Multiple Sclerosis shortly after his 21st birthday, it seemed the dream was always to remain just that — a dream. Nick joins Wallace to talk about how he refused to give up on his dream to climb — and how he's managed to overcome his illness and master the art of mountaineering.
