TOPIC: New Climber — Portland, Oregon

New Climber — Portland, Oregon 11 months 2 weeks ago #137888

Hi All,

I am a soon-to-be climber in Portland, Oregon. I've just about saved enough to purchase the basic gear. I am very excited to get going and explore the wealth of trees. I backpack regularly and look forwarding to exploring the woods in another dimension. My plan is to start very slowly, I am keen to use SRT but intend to start with DRT. I have been reading a lot and watching videos. I know this is not a replacement for hands on training, but I can't afford the gear and a class from somewhere like: at the same time. I plan to get classes down the road.

If any one knows of any climbers groups or would themselves suffer an eager learner in the Portland area I would love to meet, talk, listen, watch, and learn.

Hi Charles,
As a new member, be sure to use the TCI Climber Finder. I'm sure there are plenty of climbers in Portland. And even if you can't take one of their classes, feel free to contact the guys at Tree Climbing Planet to let them know you're around. who knows. They might be doing a public gig at some point, or something else they can invite you to.
Thanks for joining TCI, and welcome aloft (soon enough).
