      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!

Trip: mt hood - south side

 

Date: 3/24/2012

 

Trip Report:

I arrived at timberline with light winds around 3 am yesterday but after an hour of climbing the wind really picked up and I turned around. Hopefully we will get some better weather soon.

We dug a pit at about 9,000 on our way up to I-Rock for attempt No. 2 for thew week on the day before, 3/23, and got 5 fractures in three pats from the wrist.

 

Was up again on the 25th for attempt No. 4 or 5 on DKH and got booted right off the mountain by sustained 40mph out of the North. On our second trip up to the top of Palmer for the day, the weather broke long enough for me to realize we were right smack in the middle of a giant lenticular... then it closed up again and started pummeling us with yet more snow/wind

 

Not a great weekend on the mountain.
