      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!

Partner for Hood South Side!

Recommended Posts

I'm based in California but spend a good amount of time in the NW - have summited Rainier via DC, and Mt Shasta twice via West Face & Avy Gulch. All of these climbs I've done guided and have been given skills courses on all three, and I feel like Ive finally gathered the necessary skills to climb with a partner and not a guide, but I'm not 100% confident in my navigation and rope management skills. Looking for a partner who I can climb Hood south side with this May who may be able to mentor me a bit when it comes to navigation and rope management, and if it works out, partner up for more adventures this summer! Thanks everyone!!

Hood south side is very straightforward. Basically point your compas north and go up hill till there isn't any uphill left. Or follow the line of headlamps up.  Ive done it a few times. Solo at that. If you have done Rainer DC and Shasta then you should be in good shape to tackle Hood. I will say this though. The very upper reaches do get much steeper than anything I experienced on Rainer last spring (Ingraham direct route). I would love to climb it again and doing it with a partner could be fun. My wife just had a baby so my spring is kinda up in the air but I may be able to get a day in June if that works.
