As well as features, the magazine covers climbing news, competitions, people and issues, and has regular columns on equipment, books, techniques and training.
New Zealand Alpine Journal

The New Zealand Alpine Journal was first published in March of 1892. It is the premier publication of the NZAC featuring major articles on club members’ climbing activities through the year, both in New Zealand and Overseas.
The Journal also features articles on current and historical climbing topics of interest, regional reports and member obituaries. The Journal comes included with primary membership, or can be purchased as a stand-alone subscription.
Club Guidebooks, Clothing and NZ Title Publications
NZAC guidebooks and clothing can be purchased by members at a discounted rate. The club also keeps a stock of NZ titles releveant to climbers’ interests and is able to offer these to members at a price lower than the recommended retail.
Guidebooks published by the NZAC itself cover most of New Zealand’s mountain regions and rock climbing areas. They are well-respected within the climbing community as a valued and trusted source of information. shop online
