      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- SUnshine 7/4/2005

Recommended Posts

Climb: Mt Hood-SUnshine

 

Date of Climb: 7/4/2005

 

Trip Report:

Camped at Lag Crags at 8000ft Sat thro Monday. We

decided to hike the west morraine but a nicer route

would be to approch the crags from the elliot

glacier....either from the west or east morraine.

Crevasses are starting to open but still easy route

finding. Both ramps onto the Lag crags are good. Warm

conditons with winds 5 thro 15mph. Even with

relatively warm weather, we did get evap cooling so

that crampons were used from camp. Good boot pack

from camp to top of snowdome.

 

Bergshrund 1 is still quite small and we climbed above

it to the left of Anderson Rock via a ramp/snow step

system. Pockets are starting to open up but still a

sweet option. Bergshrund 2 has two options. Snow

conditons on the left of the horse shoe were like cork

and super climbing. Great direct line to the Queens

chair. There is a snow bridge half way along the

traverse to Cathedral ridge that would make the return

journey a little less spicy.
