The cairn will be based at the Sir Edmund Hillary Outdoor Pursuits Centre of New Zealand at Tongariro near Mt Ruapehu.
Many rocks will be collected during the Summits for Ed tour which ends in Cape Reinga on April 19.
Central Aucklanders wanting to particicpate can join a number of local schools which will meet at the Archery Club carpark at One Tree Hill at 4.30pm on Saturday.
