Clearly the Hogsback is shifting to the left. The standard route on Mt. Hood is now "the old chute"

Can't believe how much the upper mountain has changed over the last year or so. Makes hood a little more exciting!

Would it still be possible to go through Pearly Gates?

Sounds like a good way to finish totally non-technical walk-up. Do you think there would be solid ice even in the spring?

Thanks!
I climbed through the gates on Sunday. I went climber's left (west gates)
It's a pretty steep and exposed treverse just to get to the gates!
Going through the gates isn't too bad except for a 6'to 8' section of near vertical water ice! If the truth be known it scared the hell out of me!
My guess is that it will be less of a technical climb in the spring.
