Loc: Portland, OR
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.

Tight Whips

Seracs on the Ladd/Coe

Faint ski tracks across and down the Eliot

Final traverse across the White River.

Gear Notes:
Atomic Ultimate 78s with speed superlight bindings, race skins. 25m 7mm rope, light crevasse rescue kit. Race packs. Alu spikes and axes.

Approach Notes:
1:45 from Timberline lodge to Irock Saddle

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...
