Trip: Mt. Hood - Pearly Gates


Date: 12/30/2013


Trip Report:

Pearly Gates are a fun way to spend Monday morning. I enjoyed them so much I opted to descend back down them. I didn't see another climber on the mountain until I was headed down from the hogs back. Great day on the hill. Now lets hope it snows!!!

I tried the same yesterday (Tuesday 12/31) and although the hard packed snow/ice made for great walking, we eventually met with very high winds and 20 or 30ft visibility. Turned back a little above Devil's Kitchen.


Nice work!
