First Day of Summer

And Carver is still wet. The moss is thick and seeping. It is looking better for the next few days. If you're planning on going out to boulder, take a nylon bristle brush and clean at least one problem in the main woods before you head down to the Bonzai (frontside) boulders looking for drier terrain.

Also be sure you're a member of the Carver Climbing Club and you have your membership card with you - wherever you are in the woods, bouldering or rope climbing.

Thanks from everyone who wants to make sure the access stays open.

Listen Up.

You must be a member of the Carver Climbing Club to rope climb or boulder at the the Carver Bridge Cliff.

One of the main requirements is being able to show your Carver Climbing Club Membership Card to other members, the land owner or any of the restaraunt staff.

You must have your membership card with you while you are using the property. Don't leave it in your car or forget it at home. You must have it with you. If it's at home I'm going to ask you to go home and get it if you want or keep climbing.

I had to ask three rope climbers to leave and had to get two boulderers to go back to their car to get their cards. It sucks. I know. But it is the only real place to boulder in the PDX metro area and to keep it open you must follow the rules.
