      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!

conditions on Hood NF

Recommended Posts

I've read that Hood's north face can be good climbing in late fall. Anyone know current conditions? When it might get good? This is my first PNW fall/winter.

I flew into PDX last weekend (10/11/2013) and took that of Hood. It was taken with my iPhone, but I think you can get a rough idea of what things were like at least last weekend.

 

IMHO the gullies were looking dry.

Nope, but I would feel a bit remiss, if I didn't show a shot of this lovely ice pillar in the bergschrund on the south side of Mt. Hood on 10/29/13:

Which was inside this toothy grin:

And nearby this point release avalanche:

With the snow we've received in the last several days, I'm sure that it's all covered over, but it was a beauty.

No. I'm a rotten ice climber when it comes to pure vertical and leading, so I didn't go very far at all. I was thinking that if I'd been able to top rope it, I might have had some guts to climb it, but too many BIG rocks were coming down for me to risk putting in a top rope.
