kdm17A little late...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2011


First time up on the mountain. Started at 1:30am, took an hour siesta in the Palmer lift house, and hit the Hogsback around 8am. The snow was great the whole way up. The hogsback is very far to the left than what I had in mind and the PG route looked impassable. Nearly vertical with tons of signs of rock fall. We opted for the Old Chute, which was very straight forward, yet steep regardless. Back to the car around noon. I'd recommend waiting til next year if you're an amateur like my friend and I. Only one other person summited. The Bergy is open and very wide. No ropes.

Hiking by the ski run for over 2,000 feet was a little boring, but the top part was a blast. Great time with Jennifer and John Judd.

Had a great time. Proved the value of wands to get back down.

standard route, conditions in the last chute were icy enough that I felt safety necessitated to put on crampons the last 100' or so, but otherwise just cruising. Snowboarded from the summit, again the only issue was the gnar ice in the initial descent couloir, after that it was regular black diamond...

nicozoneOld Chute Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2011


I went up on Monday (7/11) and the conditions are great in the mornings, but as soon as the sun starts shining ice started to come loose. There are long snowfall trails coming down from the Pearly Gates route. And the Bergschrund has opened up to cover the majority of the lower route.

The Old Chute route is still in great condition, with ice holding snowpack and allowing easy kick steps. We didn't stop for long at the summit because the winds started picking up.

Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2011


Camped just outside the ski area and made the summit around 7:30am after leaving at about 2am. Good firm snow and a lot of it made for a pretty straightforward ascent.

BLongOld Crater  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2011


Took a friend up the pedestrian Old Crater Variation. The climbing up top in the chute was fun, although the route was tracked out the whole way. Abysmal weather (wet, cold, and cloudy). We only saw two other climbers on the peak the entire day; they had set up a camp and were doing the route in two days, complete with legitimate Chouinard and Frost laminated bamboo piolets!

Date Climbed: Jun 16, 2011


Fun trip and 2nd trip to Hood this year! Unfortunately I had to turn around due to my partner hitting the wall hard at Devil's Kitchen. No hard feelings towards him though, 5 summits out of 6 ain't bad. Next year he agreed to accompany me again and we'll take 2 days. Even though we didn't make it, no regrets!

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.

MissHLost Rainier but Won Hood  Sucess!
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.

Grampahawkawesome views  Sucess!
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!
