I'm 24 years old, in Corvallis, Oregon, and my goals for this season -- my return to climbing after a dozen years -- are to focus on alpine education and training. I'd like to do everything from mountaineering basics, to crevasse rescue and other intermediate options -- maybe some advanced courses if my recent-graduate-with-a-temporary-job wallet can handle the prices, but I'm in no hurry.
I've been on a moderate to intense trail running regime for over a year, and I seek elevation whenever possible, so my fitness level is high. I'm just ready to learn and climb, now.
Does anyone know about Oregon's alpine education offerings, and if so, post that knowledge?
Really, anything and everything is welcomed. I just want to make sure I'm discovering the best opportunities.
