AlpinistAndrew Posted March 22, 2004 Share Posted March 22, 2004 Climb: Mt. Hood-South Side Date of Climb: 3/22/2004 Trip Report: I climbed Mt. Hood for the first time on Monday. My friend and I climbed the Hogsback route, and it was his first time up there as well. We started around 2am and started slogging up. We brought a rope and glacier stuff, but it was useless. There were no crevasses and I couldn't even tell where the bergshrund would be. From reading the description in Selected Climbs, I was expecting something a bit more challenging, but it was cake. We summited right around sunrise. It was beuatiful on top. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Awesome views. We were the first ones on the summit and we saw some stragglers as we started our glissade down the snow slopes. All and all, a good, easy climb. A short climb as well. Gear Notes: Used Ice Axes and Crampons. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
