Pierre is an avid ultra-runner and coach, a complete Drakensberg fanatic, knowledgeable adventure guide and co-founder of Mountain Abandon. A mountain-lover at heart, there's nothing Pierre enjoys more than moving at altitude for extended periods of time, preferably sharing the experience and his knowledge with fellow mountain lovers.
The longer and tougher a mountain mission becomes, the more in his element he is! With a deep passion for movement and an ongoing drive to be "comfortable in an uncomfortable environment", Pierre truly tries to embrace and promote a "growth mindset" above all else.
