aislinnmclFirst time on skins
Date Climbed: Mar 20, 2017


Attempted to skin up Hood with a few friends. Started at 3am from Timberline but due to weather we had to turn back at the top of Palmer. Snow was a lot on the crusty side.

HarvestMy first Mt Hood climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2015


A friend of mine, Jon, invited me to climb Mount Hood by the standard South Side Route for the 4th of July. It was very icy going up Old Chute. This was the climb where I fell in love with Mount Hood and with mountain climbing.

easy climb up hood on a windy but nice day. hogsback did have a cool fairly steep section at top that required either down climbing on front points or rope.

Date Climbed: May 29, 2016


Solo climb of the Hogsback/Pearly Gates route. Beautiful day, the climbing conditions were perfect, except for the crowds. But the number of people should be expected given how nice the weather was and that it was Memorial Day weekend.

I climbed Hood twice this year. The conditions and route were great in 2016. My second climb was a solo trip. But the definition of “solo” was seriously tested this day because of Memorial Day crowds and perfect weather. I think there must have been 100 en route to the summit. Luckily I was up there during a lull and only four other people were lounging around in the sun.

I started at 3am and was on the summit at 6:10am. I spent 11 minutes up there taking pictures and loving how small all the other hills and mountains look. After negotiating the crowds coming up through the Pearly Gates (both sides were open so that helped) and crossing the Bergschrund (see below), I was back at my car at 8:50am.

Today was a truly fun climb.

This was a fun one. Great start at resort. Nice use trail out to Pearly Gate. Steep snow with ice axe ascent. Summit not entirely clear but the whole mountain is very interesting. Cascades are really pretty, and give great views all around. Descended same route.

Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2016
Summited via Pearly Gates, descended via the Old Chute. Wind and rain almost to the top of Palmer, clear from then on. Great conditions in the gates, beautiful day to summit! Only saw about a dozen other climbers or so. I left about 2:15am and summited just after 8am. Spent 30 min on top and made it back to Timberline in 3 hours. The warming temperatures really loosened things up on the way down. If I went again I would leave earlier knowing my pace.

Summited just before sunrise, and then stayed a few minutes while the sun came up. Four hours from car to summit, and another three hours to return. Perfect weather this day.

Date Climbed: Jun 12, 2016


Incredible day to summit Mt. Hood via the Old Chute. A logjam of people at the chute sent us through the steeper, narrower chute to the right on the ascent. Sketchy ice sent us back down the traditional route over the knife-edge at the top.

Couldn't have asked for better weather!

huskertriguyJust Wasn't My Day
Date Climbed: May 7, 2016


A few things building up made this a slog-fest, so I turned around at the top of Palmer realizing although I could summit, I did not need to put myself in a hole one month before Rainier.

Be back this summer.

Date Climbed: Apr 11, 2016
Party of 3 setoff at 2am. Moonless night with a plethora of shooting stars. Weather was fantastic. Followed the cat track up to the end of the chair lift and put on crampons to continue up. Only one other group of 3 on the mountain. Pearly Gates had good conditions and was a blast. Spent some time on the summit and headed back down. Back at the car a little after 11am. What a fun mountain!

Started on the right side of the lodge, the cat track, and followed that cat track up into the night along the right perimeter of the resort as is requested in the climbers cave. From the top of the lift where the cat track poops out, I wandered a bit in the darkness but at first light knew the crater entrance.The current condition of the Pearly Gates keeps you honest after being lulled by the slopes. It was a beautiful moonless night and shooting stars made for magic.
