      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!

[TR] Mt Hood - South Route 11/5/2012

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Hood - South Route

 

Date: 11/5/2012

 

Trip Report:

I attempted a solo climb of Hood via the South route on Monday. I had the whole mountain to myself. There was very little snow until above the Palmer lift. It was in the upper 40's all day and windy until about noon.

 

The snow up high is unstable, so I turned around at the bergschrund. There was lots of evidence of recent loose snow avalanches in the Old Chute and Devil's Kitchen Headwall. It might have been okay, but not worth the risk in my book.

 

Hopefully the cold front coming in will stabilize things a bit.

Approach Notes:

Mostly dirt until above Palmer.
