Ideal conditions. Nice consolidated snowpack, low avalanche conditions. Stinky at the top!

Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2006


Skied from Timberline at 7:15AM, very cold (10 degrees?). Roped up in a team of two at Illumination Saddle and protected with vertical pickets from below Hourglass to Summit. Four experienced buddies soloed the route ahead of us without any problems. Excellent conditions, relatively warm when in sun, little ice/rock fall. 10 hrs round trip.

Date Climbed: May 26, 1963


I climbed Mt. Hood with a group from the Mazamas as the graduation climb from their climbing school. I was 15 and this was my first real mountain. A photo of the climb was in the Oregonian newspaper because there was a waiting line to go to the summit. None the less it was a memorable day for me.

Date Climbed: Feb 11, 2006


Excellent climb with good clear weather battled some winds up higher but thats to be expected. We climbed to the right of the main headwall and joined up with the Wy'East route and followed the ridge to the summit.

Fourth ascent of Hood via the HOG, 3rd summit! Maybe it's time to try a new route.

Climbed in a party of three on a gorgeous day -- warm, few incidents -- I even got to see the inside of the bergstrum!

Very enjoyable climb. Not too much snow on the mountain until the groomed ski slopes. Started out at 2 am, summit at 6 am with great views above the cloudline. The bergschrund was wide open, but could be bypassed on the left side. Some pebbles and ice whizzing by as the sun hit the final slope to the summit. To my knowledge, I was the only one to summit that day because on my return trip, the other two parties were considering turning around because it was late in the day (8 am) and they looked beat! At any rate, very enjoyable climb with swell views.

Second time's a charm. Tried this route in June 2002 (just after they removed the helicopter!) and turned back at Crater Rock in a whiteout. This time it was windy but clear throughout. Left Timberline at 2am and summited just before 11. Bit of a flog up to Crater Rock but a nice route up the Hogsback and around the 'schrund. Main worry was the human bowling ball potential. We counted 31 climbers on the route and not all of them seemed competent. Down in about 3 hours. We'd stayed at Timberline Lodge the previous night, so got to use the showers (and pool and sauna if we'd wanted to) before we drove off. This is the Lodge's policy and a fine one it is too.

A great early season training climb. (Although the transit of the Ski area is a bit boring!...(it's cheating to take the Sno-Cat half way!)

Number of times summited to-date: 10 +!

LeviRoute Climbed: South Side (Hogsback) Date Climbed: Thursday June 30, 2005  Sucess!


Started out at Timberline Lodge at about 1:45 AM, got up to the Hogsback at about 9:15 AM and decided to rope up there, we got summit at a 11:00 AM the view was cloudy to the north but was perfect everywhere else. The snow and ice got slushy on the way back down and we started glissading at Crater Rock and after a long day we got back to the truck at four o'clock.

Climbed with Cluck party. Route condition, in my estimation, is in very late season form. Crevasse at Anderson, and Berg at Horseshoe, both were skirted to the right side. On this day, snow conditions were mixed with some soft snow, firm snow/ice, and crunchy rime up high on Cathedral Ridge. Firm snow was found in all the right places though. Great intermediate route, and terrific climb party.
