[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.

Approaching the schrund


First ice pitch in good condition


Just above the first ice pitch


Second ice pitch


Cathedral Spire saddle


Dropping over the bergschrund near Horseshoe Rock on the descent


Plodding down Snow Dome



Gear Notes:

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


Approach Notes:

Cooper Spur TH - Tilly Jane Cabin - rock shelter - left/se side of Eliot - right side of bergschrund

Nice! Look like another great and successful day on the mountain.

Do you have a picture of the pencil?
