      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Mt Hood - Newton Clark Headwall Ski Descent 5/29/2017

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Hood - Newton Clark Headwall Ski Descent


Date: 5/29/2017


Trip Report:

Finally tagged this one with Tom.


Dropped in at 730 for perfect conditions, 3:14 car to car.


Lots of folks starting up at 815 were gonna be in for a slop fest.


Highly recommended for the steep skiing crowd.






Gear Notes:

Crampons on the Wy'East face, and race skis on the way down.


Approach Notes:

Snow to the lot at meadows still. Barely enought to skin the whole way on vista ridge.

No summit, only the top of the face, if I understand correctly. Not that it diminishes the accomplishment.
