MT. Hood Conditions update


Recommended Posts

N. Face Left Gully: Climbed yesterday.  Currently the best conditions that i have ever seen the N. Face left gully and completely different terrain than my other times climbing it.  Ice almost the entire way up and 6 different steep ice steps, 2 of which you could bypass if you desired.(First 7 pictures)

Reid HW: checked out last weekend.  Knee deep snow slog to the base.  Still just powder on that side of the mtn, not much ice or firm snow yet. (Picture 8-9)

Black Spider: Currently the warm weather has melted most of the snow and the face is looking dry.  A little ice forming on a few of the routes but not close to being ready for the season in my opinion. (Picture 10)  

DKH Var 1: As of last week it is dirty choss ice.  Climbable but more of a rotten ice/dirt climb right now.  (Last Picture)

Hope this info helps anyone who is curious about the different aspects of the mtn.  I will try to actually post about conditions every few weeks if people care to know what is in and what is not.
