Raven Cashen

Portland Outreach

Raven’s passion for climbing began at the Smith Rock AAC Craggin’ Classic in 2015, grew at the local Portland gyms, and continued with the Mazamas BCEP climbing course in Spring 2016. She climbed some cascade volcanoes, quit her office job later that year, got her first taste of trad multipitch at Index, followed on some alpine trad, started working at Next Adventure in the climbing department, got into backcountry ski mountaineering, and got AIARE 1 and WFR certs in Spring 2017. She just got back from her first ice trip and is hooked, inspired and stoked to train more!
