      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 - Ramona Falls 12/10/2009

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt. Hood - Ramona Falls

 

Date: 12/10/2009

 

Trip Report:

How many of you have stood their and thought "I wonder if that freezes" I have been patently waiting for this to work our for ever. When I discovered the gate to the trailhead open and there was very little snow down that low, (3,400). It just worked out.

 

I left the parking lot at 12:15 this morning. The hike in was uneventful. There are a bunch of trees over the river so crossing could be as scary as you wished. The trail had only a couple inches of snow in the deepest parts. I woke up to James and Trent WooHooing when they saw the falls frozen over.

 

We got geared up to take a look. I liked the looks of the Right Chute and decided to give it a shot. I placed six screws used a tree anchor and tied off up top on a tree. James followed me up. We were so stoked. We rappelled down Rap Line leaving a top-rope for some more fun.

 

I went up Rap Line on top-rope. James went up Main Line on TR. Trent climbed Rap Line, pulled some gear off the anchor, and we headed home.

 

Such a Sweet Adventure

Threr is no cooler feeling than going up a waterfall. Unfortunately I haven't done since moving from New Hampshire three years ago. Hopefully that will soon change. Great shots!
