  1. Mt Hood end of July- <- bad idea?

  2. Mt Hood end of July- <- bad idea?

    Hey guys, New to this site. I'm liking it :-) I have tentatively scheduled a Hood climb with friends the last weekend of July. I climbed it solo back in April and it was a blast! Reason for the post, I've done a little bit of research in regards to optimum time of climbing Hood and it seems that late July is pushing the comfort barrier due to rockfall. I was wondering if you guys might have an opinion of how safe/dangerous this is climbing in the end of July? I'm giving this more concern than i normally would because I'm the unofficial leader of this trip, so i want to make sure i'm taking efforts to look into everyone's safety. Also- in April, i went up with no ropes, and honestly saw no need for them. But, now later, i know about the crevasse pulling back, so- with that in the area- does it just go without saying that everyone should be roped up this late in the season? any feedback would be much appreciated. and thanks again for making the site what it is! ben
