[TR] Mt Hood - North Face 4/2/2013


Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Hood - North Face


Date: 4/2/2013


Trip Report:

Thanks to the added stoke from some recent trip reports, we headed up the North Face right couloir. Started from Tilly Jane Cabin, dropped onto the Eliot just past the rock shelter around 7000ft. Afterwards, we descended the Sunshine Route, which besides the upper bergschrund, was really straightforward and quick. For a route that "faces north" (actually northeast) we were surprised to spend almost the whole day in the sun.

Gear Notes:

Brought rope/screws/pickets, but with the hero ice, opted to keep it all in the pack
