Nice Dave! Super sweet pictures! That Shutterfly slideshow feature is a great way to do a TR.

 

Did you stash a car at timberline or did you get someone to pick you up? Did Cooper Spur/Sunshine look too nasty to descend?

 

Congratulations!

Cooper Spur would NOT be a fun descent right now. There simply isn't enough snow cover. You'd either have to do a lot of chossy downclimbing or rap it.

 

Sunshine was the descent we did two weeks and wasn't much fun either--lots of downclimbing and traversing but the ice was bomber.

 

Like shred said, a bit more snow cover than we had. Too bad the weather is crapping out. I'd like to do that route again.

Couldn't view the pics but a "warped ward" and I did the route on friday morning and had great weather too once we climbed above the clouds onto the elliot. The route was the best climb I have done on Hood or on any of the cascades for that matter. No drama really for us. We simply followed their tracks up to the glacier. After doing this route all I really have left on Hood is Yokum and the black spider and I doubt they will be the quality this route had as far as fun climbing and aesthetics. I doubt this route will be in season again until next year but it should be on your 'to do' list. If I get time I'll give a little longer Trip Report later.
