The best guide to the best crags and boulders in New Zealand’s South Island
The South Island offers diverse climbing on a wide range of rock types in stunning and uncrowded settings. From bouldering to sea cliffs, city crags to mountain walls, trad and sport climbing, this book compiles the best the mainland as to offer.
When Rock Deluxe first appeared in 2004 it set the standard for New Zealand rockclimbing guides, with extensive color sections, photographic topos for every climb, and an easy-to-use layout. The authors traveled the island, climbing almost all the routes described themselves, and have now retraced their steps to present an entirely new edition.
