Water already gave you my synopsis from yesterday. Breakable crust over waterlogged pudding was the theme of the day. At least I wasnt working :)


No idea what kind of shape the upper mountain is in as conditions were so poor that we never felt the need to venture much above tree line. Nothing but whiteout suck, freezing rain and sleet at/above TLine with rain nuking everything down lower. It dumped BUCKETS as we were leaving. I'm sure that most of that rain fell as snow at the higher elevations but based on the TR posted here from last week it sounds like it fell on a thick icy layer which would make many routes nothing but a ticking time bomb. YMMV of course.


Also...there is a sticky at the top of The Oregon forum that deals with all things Hood. If you start a conditions conversation in there you'll likely get a few of the Hood regulars to chime in periodically.
