Holk Posted October 24, 2014 Share Posted October 24, 2014 Trip: Mount Hood - McNeil Point Date: 10/18/2014 Trip Report: In an attempt to recapture a shot of the Sandy Headwall's upper face from many years ago, I went up McNeil Point last Saturday with high hopes of there being fresh snow on the summit. To my satisfaction there was indeed a good dusting of snow from 10,000 feet and up. During our ascent we ran into the production crew of Uncage The Soul and had a brief but good chat with them. They were on their way toward Snow Dragon and Pure Imagination and had more gear than I could ever hope to own. It looked heavy, to say the least. Keep a lookout for whatever it is they're planning to produce. The remainder of the trip was extremely pleasant as we sat on the arête between the Glisan and Sandy glaciers and below Cathedral Ridge. Clouds enveloped us from time to time, but typically they rolled and curled on either edge of the knife ridge and we remained graced by the sun.
