Queenstown Rock, Ice & Boulders Guidebook Launch

Right in time for summer, we are pleased to announce the release of the Queenstown Rock, Ice and Boulders guidebook from NZAC. To celebrate this release after two years of updating effort by the author, Guillaume Charton, we invite you to attend the Book Launch for this publication in Queenstown on Friday, 14 December at Altitude Brewing Tap Room (827 Frankton Rd) from 5 pm onwards. The launch will feature speakers, including detailed updates from the author and presentations about climbing in Queenstown. With over 250 pages, Queenstown Rock, Ice and Boulders is the ultimate climber’s bible to Queenstown, featuring thorough information about every crag around the Wakatipu and with more than 750 climbs and almost 200 ice and mixed routes. It also contains a new, in-depth bouldering chapter, with more than 400 boulder problems not included in the previous edition.

Queenstown Rock, Ice and Boulders will be on sale at the launch event for the special launch price of only $35.00, and following the launch the guidebook will be available for purchase from the NZAC Online Shop from Saturday, 15th December 2018 (retail $49.00; member price for NZAC and QCC $35.00).

If you are definitely attending please RSVP as”Going” on this Facebook event to assist us with the numbers for catering purposes (or if not on facebook you can email us your RSVP). For any questions about the launch event please email Guillaume Charton (uphighnz@gmail.com) or Ashlee Peeters (ashlee@alpineclub.org.nz).
