first ascent [TR] FA-Black Spider-Center Drip-Mt Hood 3/6/201

Recommended Posts

Yeeeaaaahhh guys, looks sweet! Seems like a lot of good climbing. Was the crux tougher due to steepness or just unsavory ice?

Wow. Always have looked at these lines and thought "when will it get a FA"....

 

 

 

Well here is my answer.

 

You guys ... :rawk::rawk::rawk:

Strong work Wayne and Beau!

 

Do you have a larger copy of that topo picture, if so I'd love to take a gander.

The biggest one have online is on my old website with the "Oregon Page" . I could email you the file I have now. It is a scan anyways so it is not so hot. The material I have seen from the new guide will be top notch. Wish I could out it for you all :(

well it has been 16 years in the making for Wayne so it is a safe bet to say that this route comes in once every couple decades or so. So you better get after it now cause it may not come back in your lifetime.

Maybe climate change will make this route come back more often.

Thank you Gene, but I beg to differ, It probably comes in near every year. It is up at 10,000'. I only saw it "out" a few times when it may have been dry. I saw it in many times, but a series of unfortunate incidences (mostly weather and deep snow) kept the carrot away.

Though the Elder /Russell was done in summer, it is not recommended!
