slfoo2First Solo Climb of Hood!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2013


Flew back into Portland on a beautiful day from Denver. Looked out the window and saw Mt. Hood in all its majesty. "I need to climb that again" I said to myself. So, a few days later I did it solo (my first solo climb of any sizable peak) and had a great snowboard ride back down. Beautiful day for it too!

Climbed via the Old Chute (right-side gully up, headwall down). Firm snow and clear skies. Calm on summit. This was my 48th ascent of Mount Hood, including 10 different routes. Lots of memories over the years!

slfoo2Great day for a hood climb!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 4, 2013


Great climb up to the summit. Weather cooperated, got a bit windy on the ridge, so we had to crawl for part of it so we wouldn't blow off the mountain. Beautiful views from the top!

Climbed the standard route, via hogs back.

Date Climbed: Jan 5, 2013
Five of us left the Timberline parking lot just before 3am. We followed the packed or groomed "trail" until the top of the ski lift where snowshoes would have been nice. Beautiful sunrise at 745am followed quickly by clouds rolling in. The clouds soon brought snow and then near white out conditions around 8:15am below Crater Rock. Two of us were feeling good and were looking forward to getting to the Hogsback and making a run at the top but the weather won. Great day to be out with old and new friends though.

SirburtmundSummit end south side  Sucess!


Summited Hood via south side. Absolutely loved this climb! Last 800 ft are steep but awesome. Seeing the pyramid shadow cast by the sunrise was incredible.

JimWallaceCooking in the Devils Kitchen  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2012


Started out a decent morning,but then there was some serious wind and wite out on the upper portions of the mountain. many climbers were coming down having turned back,but we moved on. After passing the bergshrund we climbed up a steep snow slope into the west couloir(Devils Kitchen). This got steep around 60 degree pitch or so.Alot of snow and ice mixed with some rock.Every now and then the clouds would clear exposing huge icefalls. We didnt waist time here. We continued and soon reached the summit.With no other tracks to follow and complete whiteout snowstorm we were forced to downclimb the route we ascended. We did have a 60 ft rope,1 ice screw and axes though.We worked a 3 man walking belay and made it safely down the steep gully.Was a challenging epic day..I now have much respect for Mt.Hood and its challenges...,Jim W

Failed attempt. Solo climb in icy conditions in late July. Made it to the base of the Pearly Gates but despite being well equipped and highly motivated I turned around and inched my way down. Never have questioned my decision, but certainly must do something differently and one day finish what I started.

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2012


Started from Timberline, bivied at 9,000 ft on triangle moraine. Summitted next day at 7am, being only one on top. Fantastic and beautiful mountain, will do again by other routes sometime. Best to do in good snow and ice, otherwise it is nasty loose rock.

Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2012


Climbed with Mazamas. Initially a nice day, got to Devils Kitchen and found out there had just been a fall resulting in a fatality. This was the day that the climbing community lost Mark Cartier. Conditions were icy, so we turned around at that point.

Planned on the Sandy Glacier Headwall, but weather changed those plans. Ended up taking the Hogsback instead.

Driving home from my buddy's bachelor party took me right past so I had to stop and bag it. 5 hour round trip. Choking diesel fumes from the sno-cats and seeing all the trash on the route made it one of my least favorite climbs. Wouldn't do south side again.

apeturned back, poor conditions and lack of sleep
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2012
Goal was the Old Chute route. Alpine start, all three of us on zero sleep that night and very little the night or two before. Got turned back at Devil's Kitchen due to fatigue and poor conditions. Rain below soaked us through, turned to ice higher up, making buckles and zippers useless. Next time!
