The Climber #109
NZAC's The Climber magazine was published quarterly from 1992–2020 and supplied to members in print form and then digital only for the last few issues. We post the occasional article here on the website as part of the Throwback Thursday series, but it is our intention to slowly build up a complete archive of the historical issues, as exists for the New Zealand Alpine Journal. For those missing The Climber, or if you just missed the issue the first time around, we've now made it available. It is not the same as print, of course, but sufficient for reference or reminiscing.
You can access issue #109 here. This issue features some great photo content from the 2019 Remarkables Ice and Mixed Festival, the NZAC Photographic Competition and the National Indoor Boulder Series. There's also an outline of some off-the-beaten-track ski touring destinations and a story about the first ascent of Kakapo Crest in Fiordland. Pertinent to this time of year, this issue also included a Topo Poster highlighting some of the ice and mixed climbing available in the Remarkables, you can find a copy of that here. Enjoy!
