      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!

"...they fell near Hogsback, a popular route on the south side of the mountain…" Sigh.

 

From this article on KGW's website: http://www.kgw.com/story/news/2015/01/31/three-climbers-fall-on-mount-hood/22653161/

 

Glad the two are ok…some friends were on the mountain and helped with the rescue. I'd like to know how one falls from the Hogsback…I'm thinking they probably fell coming down the Old Chute or something.

i've seen a 18 year old or so kid in yukon charlie snowshoes and ll bean boots (no trekking poles) fall a few hundred feet from the hogsback, almost went into the fumarole.

 

The only thing that saved him from broked legs/anles was that he had no crampons...ironic huh?

 

when i showed him my ice ax, dynafit boots and automatic crampons he was unimpressed.
