All activities are open to everyone eighteen and over who can safely participate in our events. We're part of the Mazamas, a 501(c)(3) mountaineering nonprofit based in Portland. Follow our activities here and mazamas.org, where you can find additional activities that may not be advertised through Meetup. Our events have token fees donated to the Mazamas organization for general expenses, such as insurance and training. Leaders are volunteers and receive no portion of event fees. We carpool to most outdoor events and expect passengers to contribute to the cost of transportation, permits and any parking passes. Standard Mazamas rate is 10 cents/mile/person, though contributions are at the discretion of drivers. All AYM leaders have First Aid training and have been vetted by our committee for their skills and experience. Participants must follow the instructions of leaders in order to protect group safety. Leaders reserve the right to only include participants who are adequately prepared, amicable and safe. Meetup provides a platform for people to become friends through shared interests and activities. Part of building trust and friendship starts with using an identifiable profile picture of yourself, so people know who you are and we can find each other - especially when meeting the first time.
