      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!

Conditions on Hood SS?

Recommended Posts

I climbed south side of Hood on August the 5th. I reached the summit ridge before sun rise and hurried down before the rock fall started. The route was more challenging comparing to the early season photos.

Yep, I was up there on Sat. the 7th, hiked to just below Crater Rock and had a fantastic ski down. Looked up and the route didn't look half bad. And, reading recent climber's comments on the registration sheets, looks like its still in, though following your early hour ascent is the way to go. Good job.

So it sounds like Late July through August is not a great time to climb Hood?

 

Any suggestions on when it should start getting better again? Is there typically a good window in September or early-mid October?

 

I'd love to get a Hood summit in this year, but I'm not real keen on dodging a ton of rock fall and I don't have enough Crevasse experience to risk it yet.
