Trip: Mt Hood - North Face

Trip Date: 05/01/2019

Trip Report:


For the detailed version, check out the post on my blog.


Went up the North Face Right Hand Gully on May 1st, 2019.  The climbing was in great conditions.  The shrund is definitely opening up and may become more complicated to cross over the next few days.  The right gully fully goes all the way to the summit without any significant difficulties.  The two ice pitches are in fat/easy condition.

Get at it!

Gear Notes:
Alpine ice climbing gear

Approach Notes:
Tilly Jane trail in good condition!

Curious why you chose to downclimb the Eliot. Was Cooper Spur too avalanch-prone? 

Nothing that exciting haha.  We ditched our poles close to the bottom of the North Face and figured that would be the quickest way to retrieve them.  In hindsight it would probably have been easier to just pack them.
