      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Mt Hood - Ski Circumnavigation 5/7/2016

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Hood - Ski Circumnavigation

 

Date: 5/7/2016

 

Trip Report:

Taylor had a big birthday to celebrate and wanted to do something epic. I've been around mt hood on skis many years ago, but this time was a bit different. In later season, the route was a bit more complicated, with some open cracks requiring navigation, and sagging bridges on the Eliot called for roped skiing.

 

FULL TRIP REPORT (more photos/beta)

 

Still, with good weather and a pretty casual pace, we finished it up in 8 hours and 40 minutes in pretty good style. It's a good way to earn yourself a big pizza dinner.

Awesome. I hope to do this as soon as I find a way to spend an entire day in my ski boots without wanting to amputate my feet.

 

Also, need to get better at skiing...
