Trip: Mt Hood - Ski Circumnavigation


Date: 5/7/2016


Trip Report:

Taylor had a big birthday to celebrate and wanted to do something epic. I've been around mt hood on skis many years ago, but this time was a bit different. In later season, the route was a bit more complicated, with some open cracks requiring navigation, and sagging bridges on the Eliot called for roped skiing.


FULL TRIP REPORT (more photos/beta)


Still, with good weather and a pretty casual pace, we finished it up in 8 hours and 40 minutes in pretty good style. It's a good way to earn yourself a big pizza dinner.
