The Mazamas is a mountaineering organization based in Portland, Oregon, United States, founded in 1894. The name Mazamas means mountain goat. Mount Mazama, the collapsed volcano that formed Crater Lake, is located in Oregon and was named after the organization on August 21, 1896. They also named the Mazama Glacier on Mount Adams and the Mazama Glacier on Mount Baker after themselves in 1895 and 1907. The Mazamas' slogan, “Nesika Klatawa Sahale” is Chinook Indian jargon, freely translated as “We Climb High.”
