      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!

Keen to climb Mt Hood - any takers?

Recommended Posts

I'm working in Portland, Oregon for 4 months. I'm visiting from Australia. Keen to climb Mt Hood, or other climbs and looking for partners. Did Mt Saint Helen's on the weekend and it was great. I'm still learning, but keen to join in on any climbs. I'm a orthopedic surgeon by trade, so I could be some help on a team in terms of first aid. And yes, I ride a kangaroo to work each day back home.

I'm assuming your in good shape, as long as you can use an ice axe decently as well as crampons, sure I would love to join! Although the downside is I would need to figure out getting a ride down south, which might be possible. PM me if your interested in me joining. Also you gotta let me know when you want to climb it.
