      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!

Mt Hood on Feb 23

Recommended Posts

This is a long shot, but I'm wondering if anyone is interested in taking a rookie up the south climb this coming weekend. I'm open the whole weekend, but Sunday morning looks best so far.

 

I climbed Mt Adams solo last September, but Hood isn't something I want to try on my own.

 

Thanks!

Hey there,

 

I'm also looking for someone to team up with to tackle Hood. I'm still a bit green myself, but I've done Adams (early spring), Shasta (winter), St. Helens (winter & spring), McLoughlin (winter), South Sister (late fall), and about 40 others including 15 or so Washington state bulgers. This weekend I plan to head down to CA and knock out Lassen.

 

Normally I'd just do Hood solo but that 'schrund is a bit concerning. As such, it may be prudent to rope up for this one.

 

This weekend may not be the best time to go, as stated above, but shoot me a message if you're still interested after the snow has stabilized a bit.

Hood was crappy today. Went with a friend just to go up to 9000' and enjoy the views. Supposed to be mostly sunny, and clear according to the mountain forecast, but it was blowing snow the entire time and never saw the sun until the sunset on the drive home. We turned around at Silcox. Still good to get out, though.
