      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!

It looks like they are turning the T-line into a crazy land. We now must purchase a ticket to get there?  As always, the businesses and the government are trying to patch their budgets out of our pockets and the climbers are not even considered.

There are other ways you can climb Mt Hood. Park at the snow park parking lot across the White River Recreational area and follow the White river canyon to a great weakness in the canyon wall from where you can get to the south side. This trip will add extra 2000 ft to your climb.

From Mt Hood Meadows, you climb North-East-facing routes

you don't need to pay or have any reservation if you are climbing or backcountry skiing from timberline.  You need to park in the climbers lot and that's it.  no passes for your window or anything like that.

There was a brief period of time (C19 closure related) that to access the Timberline Highway you needed a hotel reservation at the Timberline Lodge.  Typically this is not the case.
