Date Climbed: Jun 3, 2012


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!

Date Climbed: May 11, 2012


South Side (Old Chute) route under a clear sky and 70% moon. We departed Timberline at about 2am and made the summit about 10am. I'd recommend an earlier summit if possible, as the sun was starting to melt out some small ice chunks around the crater rim while we traversed over to the chute from the Hogsback. While most of the route above Palmer is in the 20-35 degree range, the chute was MUCH steeper than the listed 35 degree max incline - somewhere in the 50-60 degree range.

There were between 50-100 people up there on this Friday morning.

Date Climbed: Apr 29, 2012


This was one of my top three climbs. this day is was a bit more then 45* slope closer to 60* but way fun we showed up the day before to see the mountain socked in to a poin where the ski hill was not visible to catching a glimpse then back to nothing. we camped at 2000ft at the Camp Springs camp ground road as it was not open yet then. I woke up at 12:20 to clear skies and started climbing at 1:30 beautyful conditions styrofoam snow and light wind for most of the way. Thank you Mt. Hood for the great suprize after such a rollercoaster of a 12 hour drive.

Steeper than I thought it would be. Glad to have the short ax in addition to the long. Devil's kitchen was particularly nasty and left my eyes feeling like I'd just chopped an onion, other than that, beautiful day for a climb.

Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2011


Started at about 145, was trying to beat a weather system. I lost. Mist condensed on me until about 9500, then it became ice. Visibility was lousy, but I went on as several guide groups had made wonderful tracks to follow. They turned back at the hogs back, but I made the final ascent and then came down. By the time I was at the top of the palmer I still had a quarter inch of ice on me. Pretty entertaining in that regard. Made it down by 8, so it was a fast run despite the weather.

gimpilatorLeuthold Coulior  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 4, 2011


The Leuthold Coulior in December is a strange place to learn ice climbing. We spent the first night at Illumination saddle. The wind destroyed my tent so we had to dig a snow cave. Later that evening another man joined us after he was unable to erect his tent in gale force winds. The following day, in the coulior, we found thin ice covered the steepest parts of the hourglass. Constant icefall bombarded us, thankfully no large pieces. We downclimbed the standard route.

DrGonzoMt. Hood, Old Chute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2011


Pretty simple (But fun) climb. We summited at 8:00 AM. On decent there were a lot of people knocking ice loose... I was struck in the hand with one of these rather large blocks. No injury, just got me nice and pissed off. I would make sure and wear a helmet if you are going to be near the pearly gates/hogsback later in the day. I'm from Portland, so it was a pretty fun day trip!
