The first guide to the best crags and boulders in New Zealand’s North Island.
The North Island offers a wide variety of rock climbing opportunities and experiences. From the sea cliffs of Ti Point and Te Ananui to the mountain walls of Ruapehu and Taranaki, from the majesty of Whanganui Bay to the urbanity of the AGS Rockwall, from airy trad routes at Kawakawa Bay to beachside bouldering at Baring Head, there is something for every climber—from beginner to hero.
With the reprint necessitated by faulty binding, the authors of Rock Deluxe North took the opportunity to make some content changes to improve the overall quality of the book. In total, 58 pages of the book have been updated. Specifically, errors were identified on the erratum and, following information received in response to the alphabetical listing of ascensionists in the first print run, a significant number of changes have been made.
