Stonefields Day Trip
Kia ora AURACians,
Hope you all had a successful break. Here's a trip to look forward to during your long uni weeks to come!
An afternoon of chill climbing at our local crag - a superb introduction to outdoor climbing. We’ll have top ropes set up so climbers of all levels are welcome!
There is no access fee to climb at Maungarei Springs, but we’d suggest you pop a $5 donation towards Aotearoa Climbing Access Trust (ACAT) for all their awesome work maintaining this crag and many others around the country: https://www.acat.org.nz/for-climbers/donating-to-acat
Carpooling will be organised from the UoA Quad (Princes St), so indicate if needed on form. Don’t forget to pay your driver a gold coin donation for gas! (via bank transfer or cash)
If you need to borrow any climbing gear from AURAC, also let us know on the form and we’ll bring it along for you on the day.
Climbers of all experiences are welcome to sign-up for this trip! The number of beginners that we can take will be limited by the number of instructors/independent climbers who can also come along. Sign ups close on Sunday 30th April, and we’ll let you know by Tuesday 2nd May whether you have a spot.
Resting between climbs or watching your mates send their project? It’s time to get your creative juices flowing and keep your climber fingers active with some sketching. We’ll bring along some essentials for anyone who’s keen, and you’re welcome to bring your own drawing supplies too.

From Nicole & Caitlin 😊
P.S. If the weather looks like it’s going to be crap we’ll be in touch and postpone the trip for another weekend 🌧
