Description Transcript (24 pages) of interview by Matt Driscoll with Rosie and Clay Cahoon on February 20, 2010
Abstract Rosie is from Oregon, went to the University of Oregon, and came to Salt Lake City through AmeriCorps. Clay Cahoon is from Los Angeles, but was raised in Utah. They both believe that climbing is a major part of their relationship and their lifestyle. They're always "chasing the dream" of new climbs and routes. They know they don't make a lot of money but they think it's more important to enjoy life. They agree that the ethics of climbing have changed over the years. It's gotten really crowded, and it seems as though people put routes everywhere. Rosie believes that women climbers have a more competitive, yet close relationship and feels that sometimes it's hard for her to have friends who aren't climbers. Rosie likes to have a balance of climbing and other things, while Clay believes he could climb every day and be happy. Interview is part of the Outdoor Recreation Oral History Project.
