Carver Bouldering Guide and in the Meantime

The guidebook is very close. I have 5 sample copies, fresh from the printer, in my possession. There are a few final edits to make along with some paper sourcing to work out.

In the meantime here is a photo of a potential area out in the gorge. I'll have more on this in the future:

2011 Season is Starting

Hi Gang,

It has been a long, wet Winter & Spring since my last posting back in August 2010. Not a lot changed on the Carver front over the last several months and so I didn't have much to write about. My non-climbing life has also been very busy, which made it even easier not to write about Carver.

All of that is starting to change as the Season of the Sun has begun to emerge in PDX.

Things I can report:
  • Mike Rosenbaum, the property owner, has been happy with the new membership cards and climbers' behavior on his property. Please keep up the good work and relationships.
    If you need a card, visit the Carver Climbing Club website to obtain a waiver and find out more info.
  • The Carver Climbing Club is planning a trail day this summer. The tentative date is Saturday, July 23 (I'll have more details as they are finalized).
  • I have also been given the OK from Mike Rosenbaum to publish the guidebook Jered Bernert and I had ready two years ago. It is going through a final review and a couple of quick updates. I'll let you know when to expect to see them for sale.
I walked the woods about 7 weeks ago and the boulders appeared in good shape, but now that we've had some sun mixed with the rain I imagine the moss and the ferns and the other stuff are growing like mad. The one troubling thing I saw was up at the cliff-line. People have been scratching their names into the cliff with rocks. If you notice people out in the woods who really shouldn't be, please inform the staff of the Stone Cliff Inn.

Check out this older post all about Carver access and rules.

Don't forget your brushes and please be safe.
