From the north-facing routes on Mt. Hood, through some of the most scenic backcountry skiing in the Sisters and out to the hardest climbing routes in America at Smith Rock, the Oregon Section has some of the best climbing terrain in the country. Add to that the great cragging near Portland, including Beacon Rock, and you have a complete range of experiences from ice climbing, trad climbing and urban bolt clipping.

John Connor. A resident of Oregon for the last four years, he spent six years in Seattle before that, with
a year in Colorado in between, for good measure. John has spent much of that time working in the climbing industry, although of late he is focused on banging his head against the large and very thick wall of freelance writing. For sanity’s sake, he gets out to rock climb and ski as often as possible, and has done so as far afield as Pedriza, Spain, Mount Cook National Park, New Zealand, and Little Switzerland, Alaska. Being quite literally allergic to much of the low-lands, he gleans the most enjoyment from such lofty places as are found high in the Cascades.
Heidi Medema practically grew up in the outdoors. As soon as she was old enough to walk her parents handed her a backpack and they hit the mountains. Yosemite was her backyard so that is where she spent the majority of her formative years. While attending UC Davis she became a backpacking and rafting guide before getting suckered into the wonderful world of climbing. Her first multi-pitch was Bear's Reach at Lover's Leap in Tahoe. Since that first heart pounding experience she has been addicted. In 2011 she spent fours months traveling from crag to crag, her favorites of which were Joe's Valley, Eldorado Canyon, and Yosemite. Trad, sport, bouldering, mountaineering she loves it all! Give her a mountain and she is a happy girl. Now living in Portland, Heidi is looking forward to helping the AAC grow even bigger and better!
