New Years Eve on Mt Hood


Recommended Posts

Climbed Leuthold's Sunday mornning.Snow conditions on the Palmer and Reid glaciers were very good. Firm snowpack with little post holing. The lower half of Leuthold's was similar, firm snow, lots of kick steping. The upper half of the coulior and the uppper Cathedral Ridge had an ice crusted surface. I saw no loading or drifted snow in the cliffs above the coulior.We summitted at noon to clear skies and no wind. The Hog's back and Devil's Kitchen both have deep but somewhat firm snow.

If the weather holds Hood should remain in prime shape.
