      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- South side 5/9/2006

Recommended Posts

Climb: Mt Hood-South side


Date of Climb: 5/9/2006


Trip Report:

The route up the south side is in great shape.

We crossed the bergschrund directly up the middle of the hogsback, snow at 6 am was hard and stable but there was a separation of the upper and lower sides of the 'schrund that required a generous step-over.

We protected the route above the bergschrund with a running belay using 5 pickets.

The Pearly Gates were incredibly beautiful, covered with thick wind sculpted ice.


Gear Notes:

5 pickets

like stomping ants though - there will always be more and in the end they will feast on your bones smile.gif
