NZAJ 2021 Autumn Issue Published
The first autumn issue of the newly-designed biannual New Zealand Alpine Journal is now in the mail to our members. This issue covers the activity from the New Zealand climbing scene since the 2020 issue last spring and this summer and autumn period gives it a slightly different feel to the traditional annual journals. As you might expect, there is a lot of attention on the Darran Mountains of Fiordland, where many climbers spend their summers, plus a host of ambitious and inventive traverses through our high places. Along with the expected reports on first ascents, there's also a smattering of esoteric reflective pieces on climbing and some historical curiosities.
Extra copies are also available through our web store here.
