  1. Hey Oregon CC members, Just wanted to reach out again from Eugene. Matthew and Sarah here. We are hosting a second in what we hope will become a bi-annual event: climbers potlucks in Eugene! OREGON CLIMBS POTLUCK - PART DEUX Thursday, October 27 6:30-9:00pm @ the home of Sarah Wolfe and Matthew Morriss Eugene, OR. It's quickly turning into fall, which means it's time for some swapping of summer stories and discussions of winter adventures! Please join us in our home for good food, drink, and a chance to meet other climbers and possible make new friends. Bring yourself and a tasty main, side or dessert dish or beverage that is your specialty and/or you know no one else is going to bring. We'll provide utensils, cups, plates, napkins and some non-alcoholic beverages. And so we're not total strangers... If you're interested in coming, please send your email address to me at wolsrh (at) yahoo.com or matthew.c.morriss (at) gmail.com and I'll send you details. All the best, Matthew

  4. Hey Oregon CC members, My name is Matthew Morriss and I am a climber who has just moved from North Carolina to Eugene. My partner, Sarah Wolfe, and I are both longtime climbers and interested in meeting more of you, as well as getting more involved with the climbing community from an organizational, advocacy, access and community perspective. To get started... We would like to invite all of you to our new home for.... CLIMBER'S POTLUCK Thursday, April 28 6:30-8:30pm If you're interested in coming, please send your email address to me at wolsrh (at) yahoo.com or matthew.c.morriss (at) gmail.com and I'll send you details. Bring yourself and a tasty main, side or dessert dish or beverage that is your specialty and/or you know no one else is going to bring. We'll provide utensils, cups, plates, napkins and some non-alcoholic beverages. And so we're not total strangers... ABOUT SARAH I just wrapped up two years on the board of the Carolina Climbers Coalition, a very active and engaged climbing coalition covering NC, SC and SE VA. I've been a longtime member of the AAC, have been climbing for about 10 years (prefer long moderate trad), have taught and programmed in climbing for several years, and have very much enjoyed planning volunteer outings, whether rebolting, clean up or clearing trails around our climbing areas. My "real" job is in arts administration and I am very passionate about it, thankfully. Excited to explore the world of alpine climbing out here - a new adventure for me. ABOUT MATTHEW I moved to Eugene in September to start a PhD program in Geology at the University of Oregon. For the past two years, I'd been living in North Carolina, climbing steep sandstone and slabby granite faces. My love for climbing has focused on longer Alpine rock and trad routes. But thrown in there is a bit of Ice and sport climbing too! My relationship with the AAC has been as an active participant of their Grant program, aka money for climbing! I'm looking forward to meeting more climbers in the Eugene area and exploring more of the climbing available in central-Oregon. I'm psyched to be out west again. We are both really excited to meet you all and see how we fit into the larger Eugene climbing community! Thanks, and we hope to see you soon! Sarah & Matthew
  5. I made an amazing geologic discovery!

  6. Food on the Ruth Glacier

    I'd also recommend the -20. While a bit higher up, I had below zero temps on the west fork in early may last year. April will be a bit colder I should think. And yes, it is almost a car camping trip...
  7. Nice photos! Any views to the west that day?
  8. I made an amazing geologic discovery!

    http://www.opb.org/news/series/valhalla/valhalla-first-expedition-oregon-gorge-discovered/ Did anyone hear this story this morning?
  9. Switching from Tele to AT and trying to sell my setup. BD Push boots that are 27.5, 2011 model year. Price: $200 G3 Enzo Binding, with screws $220 PM for details of payment/shipping *Shipping will be added to the total price*
  10. Guidebook for Canadian Rockies

    Pm me with an email address and i can share with you a pdf of the Joe Josephson ice bible.
  11. Anyone been back up there in recent years? Couldn't find another TR. Thinking about heading up this way shortly, hoping for good conditions!
  12. I made an amazing geologic discovery!

    Wow. So it did amount to something!
  13. Any recommendations on early season winter routes?

    I'll be driving from Eugene.
  14. I know that with all the new snow coming in skis and skins may be the tools of the trade, but I was curious if anyone had any recommendations on alpine routes worth doing this time of year that could be in good condition. Looking for anything in the washington or oregon cascades that could also have some potential for ice.. I have already perused this post: http://cascadeclimbers.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/868154/Best_favorite_Winter_routes_in But was looking for any other ideas. Thanks again!
