south side Mt.Hood conditions....?


Recommended Posts

I am hoping that this high pressure sticks around through Friday night/Saturday morning so I can get in a climb/ski of the south side route on Hood. Has anyone been up there in the past week? Seems like its probably quite climbable right now.Thanks.

Climbed Hood on the 15th,(So. side). It was very windy, with a brilliant blue, cloudless sky.

The spewing sulphur in the Kitchen was awful, I was grateful for the winds I had cursed earlier. I thought Baker was stinky at times in Summer...not even close.

Atop the hogsback, the Pearly Gates became narrow and steep. Winds pour into the gully, on both sides ice drapes itself over giant chunks of cauliflour snow.

It may be a dog route in Summer, but it's a worthy one in Winter.
