AURAC has its Club night from 7 to 9 pm on Wednesdays at the Birkenhead Pool and Leisure Centre climbing wall. Entry is $12 for club members for use of the climbing wall.
AURAC organises a few club trips to outdoor crags each semester. Our trips officer (see Committee Contacts) is also on hand to help suggest ideas, and guide people on how to run their own trips. Most climbing trips are on the weekends, sometimes with longer ones in the holidays. We organise car-pooling between members to get to the crags, and sleep in tents – so you’ll need basic camping gear to come along. Most times there’s free tent space if you don’t have your own, but a sleeping bag is essential.

AURAC and the Auckland University Tramping Club get together to run alpine trips: mountaineering is a combination of tramping and technical rope/climbing skills. We have a dedicated Alpine Officer who sits on the committee of both clubs to coordinate these activities.
