      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 - north face right gully 1/2/2013

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt. Hood - north face right gully

 

Date: 1/2/2013

 

Trip Report:

we climbed that north face right a couple of days ago.

 

approach was deep snow but lots of snowshoe and ski tracks helped out. sorry i walked in the track.

 

the cooper spur stone shelter is dug out, spacy and warm.

 

we traversed in across the north face to avoid postholing up the glacier,not sure if it was easier or not...

 

the snow was steep and deep and the ice was hard. i was glad i brought those BD guide pro gloves.

 

constant spindrift avalanches were extremely not fun.

 

tunnelling out the summit cornice was quite scary.

yep south side descent, 15 hours from cooper spur shelter to charlie's mtn view

 

Does one use a car shuttle to do this?

 

Awesome and cold-looking photos, thanks for the report!
