    is anyone going to head up to hood this weekend? or have they been up? we were planning on going, but just checked the weather and it doesnt look good. freezing level above 10000 ft, lots of new snow this week. thinking about doing it next weekend instead. would love a report from anyone who goes up this weekend. thanks
  4. mt adams

    has anyone attempted to get close to mt adams yet? any idea when the roads normally open? were looking at end of april, mazama glacier, just rather not slog through 5-10 extra miles of snow one way!!!

  8. SPRING PICNIC 4/30 Planning

    i'll donate an old pair of kastle randonee skis in great shape. you can use them as a raffle, or put the money into cc.com fund. only catch is someone would have to pick them up from me on their way north, as i won't be able to attend. i live in battle ground, just north of vancouver off I-5. can provide pics if wanted. let me know
  9. Hood Conditions

    Anybody been up on hood lately? Wondering how the snow is with the warmer(ish) weather we've had. Planning a trip for sunday, just wandering what we're in for.
  10. How many people actually rope up to climb the ss of mt hood? Why or Why not? Seems to me that unless the pearly gates are steap and ice, you would not need to/want to rope up except for possibly that portion. Also, imho the accident a few years back wouldn't have been as bad had they not all been on ropes. If your on ice, and not adding pro, seems like a rope could be a bad idea. Whats y'alls opionion on this?
  11. To rope or not to rope, that is the question!

    great movie! thats where i learned how to climb! you should see me leap over an abyss with my ice tools, only missed the landing once.
  12. To rope or not to rope, that is the question!

    yep, quite a few people involved in the incident on hood a few years back that had nothing to do with the initial fall, except they were on the same mountain. You just can't always tell who the incompetent ones are.

  14. To rope or not to rope, that is the question!

    thats been my view. if your not going to protect it, don't use a rope. unless of course you are crossing a glacier, then the rope is there to protect against falling into a crevasse and dissapearing. i ask because you see pics quite often with people roping up to cross the hogsback, and climb the pearly gates. but you very rarely see people actually placing any pro while climbing the gates with ropes.
  15. The city of Battle Ground is Talking about putting up a rock wall in the city. This would be the time to call, write to the city for input. Let's do this while it is still in the planning stage. They put in a "world class" skate park a couple years ago, and are wanting to build off the success and popularity of that. Let's hope for a "world class" rock gym!!!! Let's get all of southwest washington in on this. We could stop traveling to pdx during the winter to use theirs!

    guess we'll see how it turns out. hopefully they put as much money and thought into a rock wall as they did the skate park.
