Trip: Mt Hood - Circumnavigation

Trip Date: 02/12/2022

Trip Report:


Solo'd clockwise from Timberline, started around 1 AM and finished around 1 PM. It was fun to step foot on the Ladd, Coe and Langille glaciers - hadn't done that before. Got a shot of the Reid Headwall by moonlight but the moon was setting when I reached the Sandy, so no shots of that.


No crevasses on route and only two parts were a pain. (WRC had crevasses on the west slope.) The upper part of the Coe had a short bit of low angle hard but garbage ice that required tooling across. And of course the White River Canyon is always a pain in one way or another - getting down into it from up high required descending supportable junky ice - no easy dager-ing down. GPX attached.


Gear Notes:
Helmet, crampons, 2 tools, whippets, feet for walking.

Approach Notes:
Normal walk up to the top of Palmer.

Forgot about crevasses on the White River Canyon crossing.
