Welcome to RockRogue, where my stream of thought ramblings outline the trials and tribulations of being a rock climbing transient in New Zealand. This is my attempt to document and catalogue the crags of the South Island of New Zealand, as well as the hazardous life as a climbing dirt-bag living on the road, in a death trap of a van.
I’ve done my best to give an honest representation of all of the climbing areas we went to, which covers most of the South Island of New Zealand. Some were awesome, some were totally over-grown, but all were an amazing adventure for us.
Have a look around, and take in the sights we saw. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. The main lesson I learnt from all this – if you live in a van, have a mouse trap or three!
