The Alaska Alpine Club "was formed to promote the exploration and enjoyment of Alaskan mountain areas - areas which are unrivaled."
Current club activities include organizing spring mountaineering trips, the winter gear swap, conducting a six week Intro to Ski Mountaineering Class, maintaining three alpine huts, maintaining local climbing crags, and participating in community events.
Past club activities include maintaining a climbing wall at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Student Recreation Center, publishing guides to local climbing areas, and lobbying the state government to prevent industrial development in local climbing spots (the famous Alaska Pipeline was originally routed through the granite crags northeast of Fairbanks).
meetings take place (probably on Wednesdays in 2013-14) every month except
January and summer months. Anybody is welcome to attend. The meetings
often include slide shows. See the calendar at right for date, time and venue.
The best way to hear about the correct time and venue of club meetings, slideshows and trips is to subscribe to the "Climb-L" e-mail list-serve. https://lists.alaska.edu/mailman/listinfo/climb-l
