The iconic Aspiring Hut has been a base for many adventurers, young and old, for more than 70 years. Only a 2–3hr tramp via the West Matukituki Track, the hut is a great overnighter for families or those new to tramping. The refurbishment upgrades and layout changes taking place will continue the hut's legacy into the future. Please donate to the 2022 Aspiring Hut Refurbishment Project and help NZAC continue to support our future adventures and climbers in one of New Zealand's premier alpine locations.
Members who volunteer their time to the wider climbing community through volunteer instruction, running events like Banff, doing hut maintenance and running conservation initiatives are the lifeblood of the Club and deserve to be celebrated. While NZAC's Volunteer of the Year award has now been running a long time, there are many club stalwarts who contribute to NZAC and the climbing community year in and year out.
