Portland Chapter Outings Guide
This is a guide to the essentials you should consider before going on any Portland Chapter outings.
The aim of our outings is to have enjoyably challenging experiences along with others on our trips. Since there is inherent risk in what we do, it is the responsibility of each of us to participate in a thoughtful and intelligent way, matching the trips we participate in to our skill level, and using each trip as an opportunity to improve our navigation skills and our ability to assess safety conditions.
These guidelines as well as our trip descriptions, maps and trip reports are not intended to provide adequate information for independent travel and the ONC does not recommend such use of the information on this site. Thoughtful consideration should be given to the advantages of making trips with experienced group leaders who have local knowledge of terrain and conditions.
