'The essential guidebook for mountaineering in Aoraki Mount Cook and Westland Tai Poutini National Parks."
The mountains of Aoraki Mount Cook National Park and Westland Tai Poutini National Park contain some of the best mountaineering and transalpine tramping in the world and make up New Zealand's most popular alpine climbing region. These two national parks are covered in their entirety in this latest edition of the New Zealand Alpine Club's top-selling mountaineering guidebook. All new routes recorded since the last (2001) edition are included, and specific attention is given to how the mountains and access routes have been affected by climate change.
The author's love for New Zealand's mountains, fascination with climbing history, meticulous eye for detail, and passion for engaging with climbers has resulted in an up-to-date, reliable, and comprehensive guide - the definitive guidebook for the Aoraki-Tai Poutini region.
Additional features: almost 1100 routes described, including all major passes; clear descent options described for popular peaks; first guidebook to use the new mountaineering grading system in New Zealand; generously illustrated with hundreds of beautiful photos and topos.
