      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!

Bend climber dies on the north side of Mt. Hood

Recommended Posts

Sad day for all involved.

PSA Folks: If you're going to attempt ANY route on Hood in October you better be damn sure you know what you're doing. Some fairly experienced climbers have gone up the sunshine route in fall, I don't know any that have wanted to do it again.

Having been on Sunshine in October and having caught a fall on ice I can say the same about Copper's Spur in October. The top of the spur was ice. Though solo with a single axe, I was competent enough to climb through it. I will admit that I descended the S. Side and walked around via the Newton Clark back to Cloud Cap cause gong down Cooper's Spur was not going to happen. It was a lovely walk around - so lovely I did again after doing the N. Face gulley.
