  • danpringle said No destination bouldering on Ruapehu that I know of, but if you're looking for company for an explore then think about the NZAC Summer camp at Tukino 2-9 Jan. A few folks are keen on looking for new (probably easy trad) routes in the area....

  • sjclark76 said Just dug out my guide book, that picture looks like it is on the desert road side of Ruapehu. I was only at Tukino a couple of weeks ago I should have been more observant looking for boulders.

  • Graham said I may have exaggerated. I just dug mine out. On page 168 there is a photo of a woman bouldering. I do know there is a boulder as you approach the mangatepopo climbs because I've climbed on it.

  • Graham said Yes, there is some bouldering near mangatepopo - have a look at NZAC's tongariro guidebook. I don't think there is very much information in the guide, but there are some photos.

    Have you done a new route in the mountains? Discovered a new or better crossing? Repeated a rarely-climbed testpiece? Made a first ski or snowboard descent?

    For a bold few, there is always some new, mixed climbing to be found on the west face of the Remarkables’—even when conditions are on the thin side. Queenstown climbers Steve Skelton, Adam Carlson, Ben Dare made the first ascent of The Principal’s Daughter (M5+, 4 pitches) in mid-June, when there was not much snow. A bit later in the season, and just before the Remarkables Ice and Mixed Festival commenced, Steve and Graham Johnson climbed another new, mixed line on 8 August, called Naturalization (20/M6, 7 pitches).
