      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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 - North Face 05/01/2019

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.
