Trip: Hood - South Side


Date: 2/25/2010


Trip Report:

Heard about a tiny weather window for Thursday afternoon, and decided to head up to Timberline.

Left the parking lot in high winds and snow at 7am

Decided we weren't having fun and wanted to ski down - 7:30, 8am, 8:30 and 9am.

Broke through the clouds above the top of the Palmer at 9,000 ft - 10am

Decided it was too warm for my rime-ice-coated 9-layer system - 11am

Hogsback sandwiches - noon

Summit via icy Pearly Gates - 2pm

Descended the old chute

Gorgeous snow on the descent from 11k-9k, then back to the Palmer crud



Gear Notes:

Pearly Gates area was pretty icy in one spot for 20-30 ft. Bring a tool if you wanna climb it. If not, traverse to the Old Chute.


Approach Notes:

Uuuuuughh, I hate the Palmer.
