      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!

[TR] Mt Hood - South Side, Hogsback, Mazamas Up, Old Chute Down 5/23/2014

Trip: Mt Hood - South Side, Hogsback, Mazamas Up, Old Chute Down

 

Date: 5/23/2014

 

Trip Report:

Probably should have posted this much earlier. Left Timberline late Thursday night. Snow very slushy until well above Palmer. Put on crampons just below Devil's Kitchen. Bergshrund at Hogsback very wide, like 40' wide. Nobody really going up Pearly Gates. Lots of excellent boot holes going up. Had to pass a very slow 14 person Mazama group ironically in the Mazama chute. Nice view from Summit, but clouds coming. By the time we got back to Hogsback, we were in white out from there all the way to Timberline. Actually started glissading, but found ourselves sliding towards zigzag canyon. Fortunately, with GPS cookie crumbs, very easy to get back on track.

 

I get an error 407 when posting pics. So once I solve that, I will post more.

 

Gear Notes:

Used Ice Axe and Petzl Ice Tool. Crampons, Helmet.

407 is a proxy error. Probably if you're trying to post from work, you can't get the pix through to whatever URL for posting pix

is it possible to edit a post to add photos? I do not see any type of icon or text indicating how to do so.
