apachedinoLeuthold   Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 19, 2011


Camped @ Illumination after barely finding it in a whiteout. Awoke to crystal clear but very cold weather. Very faceted snow and postholing led us up Leathold instead of our planned Sandy Glacier Headwall route. Stellar day that turned into an inferno later!

6 1/2 hrs from Timberline to the summit, standing behind a boy scout troup slowly crossing the crevasse in the crater. Still no skin exposed on top in July.

Date Climbed: May 27, 2009


Timberline Lodge and back in 11 hours with Ezra Danciu, George Sakaldasis, and Hugo Pimentel. Above Crater Rock we took the hogsback and traversed to the Old Chute. Perfect weather.

The last day of official winter. Beautiful ski from Hogsback down. Finished up the Old Chute variation with fun catwalk on ridge.

We lucked out with the weather. Pay attention on Hood. Get a GPS tracker from the park. Watch the weather. Don't take chances. Hood kills people. Bagged with my cousin, Dean.

kdm17A little late...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2011


First time up on the mountain. Started at 1:30am, took an hour siesta in the Palmer lift house, and hit the Hogsback around 8am. The snow was great the whole way up. The hogsback is very far to the left than what I had in mind and the PG route looked impassable. Nearly vertical with tons of signs of rock fall. We opted for the Old Chute, which was very straight forward, yet steep regardless. Back to the car around noon. I'd recommend waiting til next year if you're an amateur like my friend and I. Only one other person summited. The Bergy is open and very wide. No ropes.

Hiking by the ski run for over 2,000 feet was a little boring, but the top part was a blast. Great time with Jennifer and John Judd.

Loooooong snow slog for a small amount of climbing on the South Side. Will do another route next time.

Had a great time. Proved the value of wands to get back down.

Date Climbed: Apr 17, 2010


standard route, conditions in the last chute were icy enough that I felt safety necessitated to put on crampons the last 100' or so, but otherwise just cruising. Snowboarded from the summit, again the only issue was the gnar ice in the initial descent couloir, after that it was regular black diamond...

nicozoneOld Chute Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2011


I went up on Monday (7/11) and the conditions are great in the mornings, but as soon as the sun starts shining ice started to come loose. There are long snowfall trails coming down from the Pearly Gates route. And the Bergschrund has opened up to cover the majority of the lower route.

The Old Chute route is still in great condition, with ice holding snowpack and allowing easy kick steps. We didn't stop for long at the summit because the winds started picking up.

Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2011


Camped just outside the ski area and made the summit around 7:30am after leaving at about 2am. Good firm snow and a lot of it made for a pretty straightforward ascent.

BLongOld Crater  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2011


Took a friend up the pedestrian Old Crater Variation. The climbing up top in the chute was fun, although the route was tracked out the whole way. Abysmal weather (wet, cold, and cloudy). We only saw two other climbers on the peak the entire day; they had set up a camp and were doing the route in two days, complete with legitimate Chouinard and Frost laminated bamboo piolets!

Fun trip and 2nd trip to Hood this year! Unfortunately I had to turn around due to my partner hitting the wall hard at Devil's Kitchen. No hard feelings towards him though, 5 summits out of 6 ain't bad. Next year he agreed to accompany me again and we'll take 2 days. Even though we didn't make it, no regrets!

Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2011


Took the Pearly Gates route while everyone else seemed to be taking the old crater variation. The gates were in perfect condition. There were not many people on the mountain that day. Climbed with SP’er Chuck(aka I like it on top).
