/ New Zeland Climbing
The mojozone forum closed down and moved to the NZAlpine Club site - the new one is as stated less busy - the various sections of the NZAC also have websites and you could also use the Canterbury Mountaineering Club FB and web.
The one place you will probably not have problems finding partners would be Paynes Ford. Since most stay at teh Hangdog Camp. Usually a lot of people around from October to May.
In some areas it is good to have local knowledge i.e Darrans. Finding guidebooks will be a pain as the south island rock deluxe and queenstown guides are currently out of print and finding one of those is like gold dust currently (trust me ive tried)
Amusingly you will probably get a better response from UKC than most NZ forums.
Basically it's a small world down here.
If you meet someone to climb with let them know where you're headed next they'll probably have a contact.
Wanaka and Paynes usually have lots of people climbing so you can wander around the cliffs saying hello until someone asks you if you want to climb.
I didn't need to look for partners to climb with but I did find by chance that Small Planet Sports shop in Queenstown in the evenings was a climber hangout. Weird.
