The Climber: Past Issues

The first New Zealand Climber magazine appeared in autumn 1992. It incorporated and replaced the NZAC Bulletin, which had been produced since 1948. The new quarterly magazine was printed in black and white, with colour on the cover only. Today, renamed The Climber, the magazine is in full colour and 60 pages long.
