  1. I see McKenzie Pass opened Monday. Has anyone been on the trail in to the Obsidian Area and/or up the west side of the Middle Sister recently? Curious how deep the snow is on the trail,campsite availability at the meadow, etc. I want to take my grandson and friends in before permits expire. Thx!

  6. Current Mt Hood South Side Conditions

    Did go, left T-line @ 2:30am. Snow was perfect, almost got to hogsback without crampons. Old Chute was firm with (in places) a lot of loose stuff from the rime falling off and the folks kicking things down but not too bad. The approach to the other way to top out and miss the narrow ridge looked sketchy so I went on up the old chute to the ridge. It was fine. A short 6 - 8 foot section a bit narrower but certainly still wide enough. I go a few pictures of it on FB. FB Photo FB Photo FB Photo
  7. Current Mt Hood South Side Conditions

    Going up tonight solo and taking Karl's advice. Old chute to the bypass (fairly easy chute past the ridge)and miss the worst of both might look at the ridge on the way down.
  8. Used to wallow up the trail in the powder over our heads when I was younger but never saw anyone ice climbing up there.
