      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!

[TR] Mt Hood - North Face Left Gully 12/9/2011

Recommended Posts

Literally zero wind all day, and ~25 degrees on the summit. This was my third time down there in the past two months trying to get this route in good conditions (ie no wind). My worst success rate on any mountain anywhere is Mt. Hood.. I'm 2 for 8. Almost all my failures have been because of wind.


Good luck.

And actually, we climbed it Monday NIGHT and Tuesday. I picked my partner up from the Seahawks game on the way down.. he only drank 5 beers though..


5 beers @ centurylink field is quite an investment!


How was it coming down the spur?

You may have mentioned it, but where is that pitch?


That pitch is the upper ice step on the Right Gully variation. Such a fun pitch, but short.



dougd.. coming down the spur was pretty good if you're comfortable with downclimbing steep snow. We reverse front-pointed about 1200'?? on everything from firm neve, to sugar, to alpine ice (near the top).


Here's a crappy iPhone photo looking down the upper spur..
