You’re so vain, you’re so vain’, perhaps is the best song to dedicate to this next BACKPACKER. Ironically, he hates dirt and mud, but is very much enthusiastic about the sport which offers a lot of these. Cool and kengkoy – that’s him. Cool because you’ll never stop adoring his get up and style. Kengkoy because there is never a dull moment when he is present. Speaking of present, he is the only BACKPACKER (aside from the lead) to never miss an official climb during BP's first year, Bravo! He is also adored to be one of the most sociable and approachable guy in the group.

Ralph served as The BACKPACKERS Vice Lead from 2010 - 2014.
