Currently training for Mt. Hood, has anyone been up Mt. Defiance trail in the last couple of weeks and can report on conditions? 

Seeking current beta on Mt. Defiance trail, thank you.

Went  up last Saturday, 3-5 feet of snow at the last 1000 feet or so, lot of postholing going on. Overall trail was in good shape.

A few trees and limbs to climb over due to the storms. 

Saw about 20-25 people all day. On a trail that long, there were moments of not seeing anyone which was nice. 

My friend's first time on Defiance and after a couple of hours, he said out loud "this trail is UNRELENTING"....I laughed and said yup, this is the hard one in the Gorge.  :)
