      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!

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!













Gear Notes:
Two Tools on steep snow/ice

Approach Notes:
Slog up in the dark via groomed trail
