Tbacon251The Gates  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2011


Took the Pearly Gates route while everyone else seemed to be taking the old crater variation. The gates were in perfect condition. There were not many people on the mountain that day. Climbed with SP’er Chuck(aka I like it on top).

Summited with best friends, Perry, Troy, and Stanislav for the 2011 Cops on Top Summit for Heroes event. We will never forget. Absolutely perfect weather. I had an incredible time.

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2011


Summitted Hood after leaving Rainier a day early due to bad weather. Nice little bonus on that trip. Went up Old Chute. Smelly and crunchy - fantastic weather and views. Can't wait to do again and beat my time.

Perfect blue skies with views of Ranier & St. Helens. A great experience for my first Cascade climb.

Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2011


A 1 am start assured that we'd beat the crowds up the Hogsback and Pearly Gates. The sun came up on a Crystal clear day with bright blue skys. The sulpher fumeroles started to make me nauseous but the wind shifted and spared me any real discomfort. Had a nice ice scramble near the top of the "gates" and we had the summit to ourselves with fantastic views of Rainier, St Helen's, Adams, Jefferson and more. I was able to do several glissades, totalling about 1200 feet of elevation loss on the way down, adding to the fun. Topping everything off, Ralph Lauren was doing a photo shoot for their 2012 winter clothing line so there were many beautiful models hanging around the lodge, the Bruins won the title, and we were successful in climbing Mt Baker also!

Drove out from CO to climb Hood and Rainier. Warmed up with Mt. Hood on June 10th and climbed a variation of the old chute. The clouds came down below the summit ridge and cleared as we summited. It was nice to have the place all to ourselves. The next day we drove to Mt. Rainier and started up the Emmons glacier. We planned on staying at Emmons Flats but ended up staying at Schurman due to a blizzard/whiteout. After all parties but one peaced out due to weather we stayed another day and summited on June 14th on a beautiful but windy day. What a trip!

SwithichSo-So trip.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2011
Climbed via the Old Chute route due to the Hogsback being pretty far west (all but two groups used this route on the day we summitted). Went later in the day when snow was softer and footsteps were plentiful (no crampons...bring crampons). Overall, my buddy and myself got; our first state highpoint, badly sunburned, and learned a lesson about ascending on ice slops without crampons.

RhythmicMomJust an easy hike


I can't remember what we did on Mt Hood but I'm sure we did not climb the mountain. I think we drove up to some higher elevation and did a trail around the mountain. Don't remember anything strenuous - but I do remember the beautiful photos and the amazing summer wild flowers! Should go back and climb the mountain! :)

Date Climbed: May 19, 2011


Couldn't have asked for a better day! The mostly full moon made the Palmer much less monotonous. The boot track was good apart from the final push up the Old Chute. I failed to solo it last year, so this was a good one to get!

Started out on Leuthold, but bad weather turned us back up standard route. Nice, but short day to the top.

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.

IlafanPerfect Day!  Sucess!


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!
