The Canterbury Westland Alps
This title is now out of print, but MapWorld still has some copies in stock as of August 2018.
The Warrior. Jagged Peak. The Great Unknown. Ivory Lake. The Thumbs. The Garden of Eden.
The names alone are an invitation to climb, and they are all in this guide, which describes the mountains of the Southern Alps between Mt Cook and Arthur's Pass National Parks. As well as the Main Divide peaks, the guide includes arterial ranges such as the Arrowsmiths, Armoury Range and the Adams Range.
For more than 100 years a strong core of climbers and alpine travelers have been attracted to this mountain region, exploring and climbing the peaks, passes and snowfields. This guide provides a record of their expeditions along with detailed and up-to-date route information.
