Bouldering at the Jardines, Queenstown, New Zealand

Jardines Bouldering Queenstown Bouldering

You’d be remiss to not stop in Queenstown when in New Zealand. It’s the adventure capital of the country with hiking, canyoneering, backpacking and climbing in close proximity. Queenstown climbing is near synonymous with climbing at Wye Creek, or perhaps the crags of its neighbor to the north in Wanaka. Even with the abundance of bolts to clip, Queenstown is home to some damn fine schist bouldering, with stunning views of the Remarkables to boot. Here’s your guide to everything about Jardines bouldering.

So here’s my guide to a Subaru Outback build out without actually building anything out.

We don’t like walking more than 15 minutes. Most of our time is spent laying on giant mattresses. I already put together a post on bouldering outdoor essentials. Now, it’s time for bouldering non-essentials. This is a list of stuff you really don’t need for bouldering, but they are so awesome, you’ll be glad you have them.

Teva Ember Moc Review

Fall is here, which means it’s car camping season! It’s the season of more. More layers, more things in the car, and most importantly, more comfort. A pair of cozy camp shoes for crisp mornings and evenings is a must. I’ve been rocking the Teva Ember Moc shoes (slippers?) for the last two and a half years. Here’s how they’ve fared.
