I just want to note that I regularly bump into all kinds of people and climb which many of them, some of whom have done the Clackamas CC class.


Every one of the CC college folks has been solid and safer than the casual climbers you usually bump into. Based on what I have seen from the students of ccc, 6 or 7 so far (and not even knowing what classes they took) and not even seeing the course syllabis Don is suggesting, I'd highly recommend the course and the college. Those folks are solid safe, while still recognising they still have some learning left.


Whoever is running the classes out there should be commended.


High regards;
