Trip Date: 01/09/2021

Trip Report:


We climbed Reid HW yesterday.  Taking the longer 8a variation.  CURRENT ROUTE CONDITIONS: Deep snow from IR over to the base of the route with a bit of snow swimming as you approach the base of the route.  Most of the ice steps/ramps consist of hollow ice right now and are much shorter than normal.  We did manage to find one steep 60-70M AI3 full value rime/hollow ice pitch.  This could be avoided by going farther left up a short ramp.  Overall the route right now is mainly steep deep snow, hollow ice and good old MT. Hood rime.  

Gear Notes:
Two tools

Approach Notes:
IR and over to route
