DrDre Posted January 31, 2007 Share Posted January 31, 2007 Trip: Mt. Hood - South side > old chute Date: 1/29/2007 Trip Report: Skinned up to top of Palmer.Ditched my skis and hiked up to Hogsback. Having been rebuffed by WI2? section on Jan 25th in the Pearlys, I elected to go up the bootpack on Old Chute (Judging by the pack, there must have been lots of summits over the weekend). The snow was very well consolidated. On top, I was over an hour early. Waited til I had some views (bad pics, though) and headed down. Skied down some crappy corduroy. Had a mocha with my wife then went cross-country skiing for three hours wth phenomenal S-SE view of Hood. Perfect day, only thing better would have been untracked powder with the same safety profile! Gear Notes: axe, crampons Approach Notes: Skis to top of palmer (unnecessary) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
