[TR] Mt Hood Sunrise 4/18/21 - Pearly Gates Right Gully up, Left Gully Down 04/18/2021

Trip: Mt Hood Sunrise 4/18/21 - Pearly Gates Right Gully up, Left Gully Down

Trip Date: 04/18/2021

Trip Report:

 

A couple weeks late but grabbed my second summit of Mt Hood! Good snow and ice with an ice axe and one tool I felt comfortable. The staircase with our warm April weather helped a bunch! Follow my instagram for more photos and videos! @dchromey253

 

 

Started at 11:30PM from Timberline Lodge. No crampons until top of Palmer. Could smell sulfur from the parking lot! Yuck! Climbed all through the night to see the sunrise from the roof of Oregon. The Right Gully is doable with 2 10 foot ice steps with good ice to plunge those tools in. The Left Gully had good snow with a small patch of ice but with good foot holds the past 2 weeks down climb was a breeze. 6 hours up and about 6 down! 😄 The long slog is the worst part. Safe travel on the mountain!
