Mount Hood, located about 50 miles east of Portland, Oregon, is one of the most climbed glaciated peaks in North America (#2 in the world behind Japan's Fuji-san, according to some).

The above sentence make it sound like Fuji is a glaciated peak. In reality, it is not and has no glaciers. Just in case you were interested.

Cheers.

Cooper Spur-Reid Glacier Headwall-Sunshine Coe Glacier all rated Class 2 here on SummitPost? The transference of Sierra Club/YDS ratings to Cascade volcanoes has always been dubious at best. Rating these climbs at Class 2 given their fatality-filled history is absurd in my mind. 50 deg snow ice Class 3/4.

Interesting in the ratings. Could Grade and Class be mixed up on that table on the main page? If you look on the specific route pages for those 3, only the Sunshine shows Grade 2 Class 3, the others don't give a rating. I wish there was a better system out there for mountaineering. I've done Reid and Sunshine routes and can tell you that at times in places, the Reid can be near 70 degrees mixed rock and ice although from what we saw, more around 55-60. The Sunshine was easier and shorter in it's crux section that Reid although it took much longer. There is something in what you say in that Reid could be from Grade 2-4 depending on how long it took you. I would disagree though that any route should be rated based on number of fatalities. 10 people could fall and die on a hike up Tom Dick and Harry Mountain and that would still be only considered a hike.

I agree with kraymes that YDS class 2 is the wrong rating for any climb that ordinarily entails both use of equipment and exposure to dangerous falls. My guess is that some entries in the tables on the main page say "class" when they were meant to say "grade." They ought to be corrected so that people will not be misled.
