Since 1891 NZAC has been the hub of NZ climbing, and as such has amassed a rich and varied history, much of which is well documented. Whilst the Hocken Archives, under the NZAC Collection, remains the primary place for the NZAC paper and image records, we are making increasing amounts of material available online, for example, notable events, significant members, a downloadable NZ Alpine Journal Index and more. In addition, you will find many back-issues of both the NZ Alpine Journal and The Climber magazine for sale in our online shop.
