Trips & Clinics

The ORC offers many trips, classes, and clinics each semester to provide you with the opportunity to learn new skills or enhance your knowledge of the great outdoors. Come take an adventure with us, bring your friends, and make some new ones. Check out the options in the sidebar and see where it will take you!

Policies

Members of WSU or the wider community who can meet the physical requirements of a trip and are at least 18 years of age are eligible to participate. WSU students who are 17 years of age or older are also able to participate. Youth, 5-17, are not allowed on regular trips unless there is an exemption.

In order to minimize our environmental impact, maintain facilitator-to-participant ratios, meet permit criteria, and coordinate transportation logistics, ORC trips are often programmed for small groups (typically up to six participants with two facilitators). Late cancellations can seriously impact our ability to accommodate others and recover costs.

Full refunds will be given for cancellations made two weeks or more prior to the registration deadline. A 50% refund will be given for cancellations made within two weeks prior to the registration deadline.No refunds are given past the registration deadline.

Trip Ratings

The following is a five tiered rating system that includes general descriptions of five levels of difficulties adapted from the American College of Sports Medicine. Certain trips with low technical skill ratings and very high levels of physical requirements could be rated the same as a trip with very high technical skills and a very low physical requirement, so always be sure to inquire as to the specifics of the activity you are participating in. These are general descriptions of the five levels and may differ when applied to specific activities.

Level 1

This activity requires low levels of physical conditioning and no specific experience is necessary, technical skills are not necessary. 

Level 2

Good physical conditioning is necessary, little experience is required, and little technical knowledge is necessary.

Level 3

Good physical conditioning is required, some experience is recommended, and some technical knowledge is highly recommended.

Level 4

Good physical condition is required, experience in the specific activity is required, and technical proficiency is highly recommended.

Level 5  

Excellent physical conditioning is required, proficiency in specific technical skill is required, and prior experience is a necessity.

Essential Eligibility Criteria for Participation

The wilderness environments of an ORC trip can be remote, dynamic, and challenging. For these reasons, participants should be committed to take responsibility for themselves, and functioning effectively in a group to achieve trip goals. The Essential Eligibility Criteria is applicable for all participants. A qualified person is one who can meet the EEC, with or without appropriate accommodations. Reasonable accommodations are available with adequate notification. Please call Joanne Greene or Jeff Elbracht at 509.335.9668 for accommodation information.

Section 2:

This section lists the EEC specific to different trip types or activities.  All participants must satisfy the EEC listed in section one, and the EEC in section two that is specific to the trip type they are considering.  If you are attending a day trip, you do not need to satisfy the Outdoor Living Skills listed in section one.

This 3-day instructional climb teaches you some of the basics of glacier mountaineering, including self-arrest training, as well as glacier and rope techniques while ascending this beautiful giant of the Cascades. We'll be traveling as high as Camp Muir, which at 10,000 feet, is the most popular base camp for climbers making a bid for the summit. On this climb, you'll get a taste of the alpine climbing experience, take in extravagant views and get up close and personal with Washington's highest peak! With a 3:1 climber to facilitator ratio, we offer a very personal experience from seasoned and knowledgeable adventure facilitators. (Please read remainder of the trip description for IMPORTANT information) A certain level of fitness is necessary in order for the group to reach its camp at the top of the Muir snowfield (8 miles, 4640 feet of elevation gain, and a 10,080 foot high-point). It’s recommended that at the time of the climb, you have the level of fitness to be able to run 5 miles at a 10 minute mile pace (or a comparable equivalent). This is not a prerequisite, or requirement, but we believe that you and the rest of the group will have a better chance for an enjoyable experience if you were at that level when we started our climb. Due to the tight timeline this trip will be departing no later than 4:00pm on Thursday September 13th. Please make arrangements so you are able to depart at this time.

Lead climbing is the method of climbing where you clip your rope into protection as you ascend, rather than being belayed through one anchor at the top of the climb (top roping). In this clinic we’ll teach you the skills needed to effectively lead climb and belay. The clinic will be instructional and have open time for students to practice skills they have been taught and skills they already know. Harness, shoes, and belay devices will all be provided. Program rating is level 3: Participants must have a belay qualification through the WSU SRC Climbing Wall, and have a strong base knowledge of roped climbing methods and systems. For those patrons who would like to take the qualification test without the clinic, we will provide you with that opportunity early in the clinic to make best use of your time. Cancellation Policy: With receipt or proof of purchase, full refunds are given until the registration deadline. 50% refunds are given until the day of prior to the class. Sorry, no refunds given on or after the day of the class.
