Incredible day. Carried the skis up to below the Hogsback, but stashed them due to ice-snow mix that just wasn't fun skiing. Late start = solo summit, but bluebird skies and a nice boot track from all the early-risers made for a great day! Be back to play on another route for sure!!

Solo trip to the summit, first of the season. Perfect day for the climb. Very cold till I hit the summit where the sun was waiting...
Left the truck at 2:40am, hit the summit at 8:10am, took my time back to the truck because the weather was soooooo nice.

Excellent climb up the South Side (up the ski trails from Timberline lodge, via Hogsback and the Pearly Gates). Clear, blue skies and winds in single digits.

Oh Hell no I didn't get to the top, but I don't care. Mt. Hood rules. It was July, and kids were snowboarding! I was in snow in July, and I was freezing my Minnesota ass off. Fabulous! Mt. Hood is so majestic and regal. The lodge was great, the views unbelievable, and the Pacific Ocean I waded in after the hike was splendid. Perfect!

We climbed up from Timberline and camped on the mountain just above the ski lifts. A quick glissade down was a highlight of the day!

Made an attempt with TMG...lots of ice and rock fall, so no summit. I'll be back!

Finally stood on the summit after three tries--two by way of the Cooper Spur. A softball-sized rock nearly broke my shin on the Spur, so we climbed the south route instead. Beautiful.

Made the summit at sunrise. Only party that beat me to the top was a guided party that rode in the Snowcat. Nobody ever mentioned the sulfur smell.

LadyWawaLive to Climb Another Day
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2010


My first attempt on Hood was not successful! I went the Southside/Hogsback way and there just wasn't enough snow! Turned back at the gates seeing as there was no snow to climb, only rock (which by the time I made it up there) was already bulleting towards me and denting my helmet with small and NOT SO SMALL rocks (i.e. large boulders). I considered going the alternate route from there but it was getting late and I decided that Mt. Hood and I would have a rematch some other day when I wasn't exhausted and pelted extremely. Also, by that time I had way too much fumerole exposure and I needed to get out of there.

But I will say this. There was absolutely nobody else on the mountain that day (even though it was clear) which was strange also. I anticipated it being very busy but I saw no one.

With MM. Felt like crap after an 11.5 hr drive to the trailhead. We were going to start at midnight but decided to sleep in the car until 3. We got virtually no sleep as it was one car door slamming after another all night long. When I signed the registration form at 4, people were already returning from failed attempts. We didn't get started until 4:45 in the drizzle and then steady rain. The wind was howling and there was no shelter from it whatsoever. A huge herd of people emerged out of the mist on their way down, having given up due to the bad weather. It stopped raining by the time we got to the Hogsback but everything was completely socked in. Crossing the bergschrund was trivial, but the ascent to the top was on very solid ice, but fortunately there were lots of steps and we were able to use the holes from other people's ice axe plants. It miraculously cleared up on the top and we had nice weather on the way down. At the bottom my feet were so soaked that I was pouring water out of my plastic boots.

A bit of ice near the end, but with being careful I was alright. Would like to come back here one of these days.

I've been climbing Mt. Hood for over 15 years now, and I've learned that the winter is the only time worth being on the south side. No crowds, no postholes, no one to floss you off the face, and no rocks or ice chucks barreling down at you all the time.

Great climb - beautiful section of the mountain. Our guide started to give me the willies right when we were trying to get around the bergschrund on the north side. I guess all's well that ends well in this instance. Decided to drive back to Seattle that night and became well acquainted with the shoulder warnings on I-5 each time I nodded off. I'm an idiot.
