We present new hairy black hole solutions of su(N) Einstein-Yang-Mills theory (EYM) in asymptotically anti-de Sitter (adS) space. These black holes are described by N+1 independent parameters, and have N-1 independent gauge field degrees of freedom. Solutions in which all gauge field functions have no zeros exist for all N, and for sufficiently large (and negative) cosmological constant. At least some of these solutions are shown to be stable under classical, linear, spherically symmetric perturbations. Therefore there is no upper bound on the amount of stable gauge field hair with which a black hole in adS can be endowed.
