Nice jaunt up the Hogsback. Amazingly good weather, little hot in the middle of day though. Note to self- don't wear black pants!

First true alpline summit. Left at 0230am and topped out around 0730. Beautiful day, one group left as we arrived. Had the summit to ourselves. Of note, for 5 of us, it was our first summit of Hood. Steve Boyer was kind enough to take us up and give us some history on the mountain point out were some of the more infamous accidents had occurred in the past. I think it was his 155th summit of Hood. Cheers to him.

Climbed to top of hogs back and turned around. No protection and no partner for running belay. Looked pretty slick above the bergshrund. Gonna go back next year, fun mountain!

Successfully climbed the Hogsback on our second attempt. The previous year we turned back at perhaps 9500 ft. due to a whiteout. This year we were blessed with blue skies and 100 mile visibility. Rainier seemed close enough to touch.

We climbed the south spur route late season and found the shrund unpassable so we lowered into it and did some ice climbing in and out of the shrund it was a lot of fun and a long day

Made the summit after being turned back due to weather a few weeks prior. Very crowded, but had a great time.

A mountain that is easy enough for a day trip, but interesting enough to climb more than once. Go early season and climb in the dark, or risk being on the evening news. I experienced rock and ice fall and I summited before 8am each time.

Via the south route and pearly gates. It figures that more and more climbers are using the old chute as the gates are getting steep with some menacing-looking rime ice hanging out there. Hit the trail around 1230am and just beat the sunrise at the top. It was down-right inspiring if I can sound like a hallmark card. An absolutely memorable, if windy, 20 minutes on the top with the sun coming up.

Unsuccessful on Old Chute due to frostbite on lips (believe it or not! Although my dermatologist did verify that it was frostbite).

Mike Weber and I soloed the Cooper Spur in 1975. We passed several roped parties on the way up.

Climbed Hood in March 2002, June 2002, April 2003, March 2004 and this was the 5th successful summit. Seems the Hogsback is shifting towards the left side from a few years ago.

Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2007

We expected more snow than there was so it was a dusty rocky ascent to camp up the Hogsback Route. Summited the next day in clear sunny conditions. Rockfall from a party descending above forced us to move quickly. The most surreal aspect of the summit were the butterflies - what WERE they doing up there?

First peak involving glacier travel. Great experience. We started the climb about 1:45 a.m., and reached the summit at about 5:45 a.m., just when the sun was coming over the top of the peak. It was very windy at the top, but good snow conditions. Originally worried about the warm weather, but the temps dropped low enough to freeze everything. Already making plans for the next one.

Climbed with crzyjt. Left at 2AM in a horrendous windstorm which luckily abated by sunrise. FS reported icy conditions in the Old Chute, but apparently icy means "perfect cramponing snow." Pretty ideal climb once the wind stopped.

It was my first decent mountain, and I went with a group of 12. Most of them were newbies as well, so we didn't summit until 2:30pm, even though we left at the right time. I did carry a watermelon to the top though, which made for a very enjoyable lunch at the top with great views between the whisps of clouds.

Climbed with Carl. Got wheathered off above the lifts the previous weekend with Machelle. Temps were brutally cold till reaching the summit (sun!). Left chute was solid ice going up. Right chute was good plunge stepping coming down. Arrived to lonely summit!

I climbed with Dan-O below me and the same group of people who raised donations to benefit Big City Mountaineers. Just like he said, it was a great group of people and a great climb! I hope to climb more of the Cascade volcanoes in the future.
