Christchurch, Castle Hill and down.

So we spent a few days in Christchurch and finally hired a campavan for our 2 months in New Zealand. Spent a day climbing at Mt Pleasent and Britten Crag in the hot sun - thought it was going to be cold here.

The very English Christchurch punting.Our Jucy Crib that we had for 2 nights before getting our bigger van.

On our way up to Castle Hill we went home (sort of).

Then to Castle Hill. Flock Hill, Quantum Fields and Spittle Hill were explored - very similar to Font - lime not sandstone, grass field not sandy forest, no crowds or polished holds.

Getting down from the Castle Hill boulders can somethimes be the exciting part.Our Jucy Cruiza - a Toyota HiAce in one of the free nightstops.

The Palm trees and view from Hanging Rock Crag near Timaru.

Bouldering in the mist at Hulk Hogan, near Duntroon.

We are now at Dunedin having spent some time yesterday at Long Beach (did a bit of climbing there too).
