      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!

Beta on Hood south side/old chute

Recommended Posts

If anyone has recent beta on the Mt Hood south side/old chute route it would be much appreciated (rock fall/snow/ice conditions). The National Forest Service site says the south side climbing conditions were good as of July 6th, but I haven't seen any updates since then. 

Thanks,

Jack

Did a quick lap up this week (July 22). The bergshrund is quite open, as one would expect this late in the season, but easy to end run to climber’s right. 

Both left and right gates are pretty crappy. Expect a steepish mix of hard ice, shitty soft late season snow, and flowing water. Lots of gravel and small rocks litter the surface. You would not want to linger here. 

I didn’t see the Old Chute or Mazama Chutes up close.
