      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] Mt Hood- Leuthold Col 2/25/2005 + photo-log

Recommended Posts

Climb: Mt Hood-Leuthold Col

 

Date of Climb: 2/25/2005

 

Trip Report:

Jay and I did our first climb of this route, one week after climbing neighboring Reid Headwall. Route conditions like other posted TRs of this route. Only change would have been to start at 4am vs 6am to reduce the rock/ice pummelling we endured in the hourglass. Reached summit at 4:15pm, approx 10 hours after stepping on snow. Glissaded most of descent from crater rock for 12.5 hour round trip.

 

Weather was ideal, cold ,CAVU, little wind anywhere. FL=6500; Here are 27 photos:
