Ed Cotter has passed away.


I received the sad news today that Ed Cotter passed away. Ed will be remembered by many of us as an exceptionally good climber, the Father of Adventure Tourism, and a warm and supportive friend with an infectious sense of humour. 

I remember climbing Mt. McFettrick with him in 1991, being his boss at Franz in 1991 and a friend ever since. My daughters loved him and often talk of Ed at Anita Mckerrow's 21st, sleeping in our woodshed at Hokitika. You were an amazing man Ed. My condolences to the Cotter family.
