      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 - Pearly Gates - Left 01/13/2019

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Hood - Pearly Gates - Left

Trip Date: 01/13/2019

Trip Report:

Just a quick conditions update for Mt Hood.


Took the left option in Pearly gates and found a short step of ice, maybe 5-6 feet. Followed by maybe 10 meters of low angle ice. It is in great conditions for those comfortable on water ice.

Downclimbed the mazama chute. All the old chute routes are in and straightforward steep snow climbing.

Saw several parties heading up DKHW and am interested to hear a conditions report there.  Based on the ice in the gates I expect the headwall to be in shape with good ice.

My 17th and first solo Hood. Well, except for the rest of the hoard. B|
