      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] Mount Hood- NE Face Direct 11/29/2004

Recommended Posts

Climb: Mount Hood-NE Face Direct


Date of Climb: 11/29/2004


Trip Report:

On Nov 29 under cold clear skies Matt Cline and I ascended the 2000' NE face of Mount Hood. The approximate path of our travel would lie between routes 4 and 5B in the Oregon High book, following gullies and open slopes to the summit ridge.

We encountered perfect neve, 50 degrees with steeper bulges, often water ice, through short rock bands. Above 10,000ft we found periodic unstable windslab to 24".

Six and one-half hours from Cloudcap trailhead to the summit, descending the south side.


Gear Notes:

We soloed the route without incident, but stoppers/cams to 1.5", pickets and 10-13cm screws could be used to protect...


Approach Notes:

Coudcap road is still open all the way to the trailhead as of 11/29. We even got a Ford Tempo up there!

cool guys--nice work. thumbs_up.gif Good to hear about the road too.

This route sounds pretty fun. Similar to the line vw4ever and party did a couple weeks ago if I recall.
