JurgenMt Hood  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2014


Normal route from timberline lodge. Started at 3 pm and summited at 8 pm, which was ok. Bergschrund is wide open so we did the old chute route. Which is in good condition. No rock fall, just some ice fall from other climbers. Nothing serious though.

Summited just as the sun was rising. Beautiful. Took the Old Chute, as the bergschrund was already open 5 or 6 feet. Advise to others would be to ski down from top of lift - slog down was the only downfall of an awesome day. #16 HP.

Went on my first Mazama's climb. Left the lodge at 11:30 PM. Turned around at 4:30 due to the clouds moving in and lack a viability. We be attempting again soon.

I climbed with two friends via the Old Chute. It took us a little over 6 hours to reach the summit as we spent lots of time waiting in line on and above the Hogsback. With no moonlight, we couldn't see much going up, and clouds limited the views from the summit. The views coming down were incredible though with the clouds clearing as we descended. We had roped up starting at the Hogsback on the ascent, but decided to solo coming down. Descending the icy chute was the only sketchy part. We removed our crampons just below Crater Rock and had some fun glissades down to about 8500' dragging our axes to control speed. It was a fine day on an awe inspiring mountain. HP46

A climb with my friend Brandon, who had always wanted to climb this mountain since his days growing up in Oregon. Some dude had spent the night on the summit. Slightly hazy up top, but warm and sunny on the descent.

ThorsChosenSummit Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 7, 2004


Fun day climb with beautiful weather. The gates at the top and the views of the other volcanoes was awesome. Sadly I lost all my pictures when my computer crashed a month after I climbed it. Don't remember the exact date, just that it was spring 2004 before I finished my first year of college.

Inverted temps led to horrible climbing conditions with rock and ice fall. Watched a guy slide/rag doll about 500 feet down the old chute. Turned around after that.

My girlfriend (Lacey) and I were the only 2 people attempting the summit on this day. I think I have a knack for attempting peaks during times when you're not recommended to. And after the last lifthouse at 8800', we didn't see a single soul until we returned to that elevation, where Timberline had opened the ski resort for some early season skiing. We started at the Timberline lodge around 8:30 am, ignoring the threat of rockfall during late morning starts via the Pearly Gates. The snow was extremely icy until we reached the lifthouse at 8800'. Then above the groomed run, we were able to find some windblown snow on which we could get some footing. At Crater Rock, we decided to head to the right around the smoking cauldrons, to avoid getting the steam blown towards us. And instead of heading up the Hogsback, we went up the bowl well to the right. The bridge between the Hogsback, and the Pearly Gates was non-existent, and a gap of 100' or so made us feel glad we didn't attempt the Hogsback. Once in the chute up to the Pearly Gates, pebbles began flying down the chute at us, like bullets shot from a fortress above. One hit the back of her hand, and another hit me in the finger. Luckily we had gloves on to lessen impact. But helmets are a good idea to avoid getting hit in the head by these pebbles. The Pearly Gates were so icy, and there were moments I was scared for our lives. We didn't have crampons, or ice axes. This was the hike that officially committed me to investing in this necessary equipment. I had a legitimate scare, where I slipped backwards, and avoided slamming into my girlfriend, and sending us both falling over the edge of the section of Pearly Gates that we had just come up, by centimeters. The summit was beautiful though. We managed to make it to the top in 5 hours. And then flew down the mountain in 2 1/2 hours, just as the ski patrol was making their final sweep of the mountain. Was a great day!

Made the climb with my two brothers. Whiteout conditions on the descent. Followed a compass bearing to get back to the lodge.

We had perfect weather. STarted up the route from the lodge at 12 am. We ascended the SW route and bypassed the pearly gates due to chock ice. The bergschrund was wide open on the top of the route

Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2011


Beautiful day but dicey descent. We had to ascend up and down the "Old Chute" rather than the "Pearly Gates". Thanks to my climbing partner, Kevin, we made it.

Old Chute Route. Solo. Clear conditions, no wind, moderate temperatures, compact snow. All things fell in place.

deathzonescience Wy' East Route  Sucess!


Climbed the Wy' East Route. Required 3 pitches over steep snow sections of about 50-55 degrees. Anchors were build snow stake and T-slots. I would recommend taking the snow cat to 8,000 ft and also renting skis and stashing them in the AM at 8,000 feet in order to ski back down to the base rather than spend another 1-2 hours hiking down the ski slopes.
