  1. Better PNW weather forecasting

    Would like to thank @bedellympian for this excellent resource. Was able to get in a summit on Hood Sunday before the weather rolled in thanks to knowing when exactly we had to be off and heading down. Seemed everyone else was scared off by the forecast they got from other resources, or they got their fill in on Saturday.
  2. 2019/2020 OR/WA Ice Conditions

    It is on the Eliot, but didn't really get a view of the NF due to the weather conditions. My partner Noah was back on Hood yesterday and saw someone solo the Right Gully so it might be in currently.
  3. 2019/2020 OR/WA Ice Conditions

    Went and hiked up with Noah to try and climb Cooper 30 on Saturday. Not quite in yet. Looking up at Cooper 30. Still a bit thin. Flows to the right of Cooper 30. Thought about climbing the right pillar, but Noah couldn't find a safe anchor for me to belay from and we were running a bit low on time.
  4. Mt. Stuart climbs FROM Core Zone? (Edit: Or Colchuck!)

    The way I understand things, the core zone permit allows you to camp in any of the zones. So you could climb Stuart initially then go on to enjoy the rest of the core zone afterwards, leaving you with only one trip up and down Aasgard.
  5. Your favorite non-or-semi-technical long linkups?

    Look into the ultrapedestrian wilderness challenge routes. The most that they will have is some snow traversing and maybe some scrambling but they're plenty of fun and should be doable solo or with a friend. The website is http://ultrapedestrianwildernesschallenge.com/ and the route descriptions are in the ultrasignup pages for each route.
  6. Climbing partners!

    I'd really recommend against Hood this season. The warm temperatures this late in the summer melt the ice that's keeping the upper mountain together. So unless you like playing dodgeball with falling rocks it might be smart to delay on Hood.
