      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

[TR] Hood- South Side Crack o Noon Club HighEnergy Blitz Slog 4/11/2004

Recommended Posts

Climb: Hood-South Side Crack o Noon Club HighEnergy Blitz Slog

 

Date of Climb: 4/11/2004

 

Trip Report:

1st of all my shoulder is messed up from overuse, so this weekend had to be non shoulder stuff. so sat i went on a 7hr mtn bike ride and came home really tired so i missed my alarm this morning.

Luckily I woke up at 10am. I decided to check out Mt. Hood since i never have even been up to Timerline Lodge or anything.

The snow was a bit soft and was sorta kinda firm near the top. no ice or rockfall. I didn't need crampons, an ax, a helmet, a shirt, or pants(which i brought). Definately didn't need snowshoes or skiis(didn't bring). I got sunburned from not wearing a shirt. Then i went down the mtn to my car. lots of aerobic b.s. this weekend. hope i can climb again soon.

 

 

Left Car: 12:30pm

Top of Mt Hood: 3:00pm

Back at Car: 3:40pm

 

pretty good for my 1st time on hood, eh?

 

Gear Notes:

some type of footwear

walkman

water

poles

 

Approach Notes:

snow

How did you get down so fast? I can't even ski down that fast and you said you didn't have skis. Were you at a full sprint the whole way or something? wazzup.gif Nice work! thumbs_up.gif

actually layton had skiis surgically implanted into his feet after he smushed 'em, so he had no need to mention them

I sprinted the whole way down. I am paying for it cuz my pack cut into my neck and back pretty bad. showers hurt.

 

I am gonna try and beat Dan's time somewhere over the next 3 years, unless someone climbs it faster...then forget it.

speaking of s. side and speed, the other day while slogging up the cat trail i was thinking one could get some studded mtb tires and ride up in the right conditions. i wonder if it has ever been tried.

I'd assume your second fastest time is just as official as -'s fastest tie (if not more official...) thumbs_up.gif

 

Refer to this thread for more info on - on Hood, etc
