Details

Eight members of the Portland YMCA Triangle Club get ready to head to Mt. Hood for a group climb. Two others who accompanied them are manning the camera. You can see the results of their climb and more information about it by clicking on the photo in Related Items below.

The name for the club came from the early logo for the YMCA, which consisted of an inverted triangle, with the words "body" "mind" and "spirit" on the three sides. In detail view 2 you can see the inverted triangle being worn on the chest of one young man. Certainly the act of climbing Mount Hood would involve all three of those aspects.
