Remember last spring when I took that awesome mountaineering course? This year I waited anxiously for an email from Jay, our team leader, asking for volunteer assistants for this year’s class, and when he finally sent it I was among the first to reply. I hope that BCEP is a highlight of my spring for years to come! I work evenings and wasn’t able to attend lectures and classroom breakout sessions, but I went on every weekend adventure I could. Here are approximately one bazillion photos I took of this year’s excellent team, the Kick-Axe Climbers, kicking ass on Dog Mountain, hiking the Elk-King’s Traverse, playing in the snow on Mount Hood, practicing on indoor rock at the Mazama Mountaineering Center, rappelling off of Cougar Rock, admiring the views from Coyote Wall, camping at Maryhill State Park, and of course getting their climb on at Horsethief Butte. I snuck in a couple photos of me taken by teammates as well.
All of us:
