New Zealand's New 9a

New Zealand is a wonderland of glaciers, rainforests, rugged coastlines and amazing climbing. Black Diamond Ambassador Roland Hemetzberger traveled to NZ to sample all that it has to offer, and ended up making the first ascent of Nebuchadnezzar. Rolo has offered the grade of 9a, which would make it the hardest route in New Zealand.
