      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!

Mt. Hood - Cooper Spur late may

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to climb Cooper Spur in late may. I climbed the Southside last year and I'm looking for a less traveled route. I'm a newbie with the summits of Rainier and Hood under my belt. I've done some research on this route and it sounds like its not wise to descend it. Is it wise to be roped up on ascent depending on conditions?

Is route finding relatively easy? We are planning on camping near tie in rock. Any other recommendations? Thanks.

Depends on your comfort level, experience in your team and snow conditions.

Yes, the route finding is very straightforward: see Ore High or take the left couloir down below the summit ridge.

If you will be camping at the Tie-in rock, are you packing the tent up the Spur? In late May, the Cloud Cap road might be open, so you should be able to do it in one day unless you wanna take your time and enjoy the North side.
