How does Hood compare?

Hello, my brother and I are planning on climbing Mt. Hood on July 6th this year. We haven't been exposed to too much cramponing in the past and we're planning on climbing without a guide up the South Side (Hogsback) route. I recently climbed the Cristo Couloir of Quandary Peak in Colorado and wanted to know if any climbers here have climbed both the Hogsback as well as the Cristo Couloir and could let me ...

Mount Aix

I know the snow levels are way less than normal in Washington. I read that Mount Aix is typically climbable mid-May. Given this year's snow levels, I assume it should be good to go now. Thoughts? Or better yet, anyone have current beta?

Thanks for your time!

Best Way to Complete Diablo-Chelan Loop?

I'm planning to hike from Diablo Lake to Stehekin in September. I want to hike back to Hwy 20 by a different route, ending at Rainy Pass. It looks like I could use the PCT, or take the Rainbow Creek Trail to either McAlester Trail or Rainbow Lake Trail. Which way would people recommend?

New hiker/climber to the Olympic Peninsula

Hey there! As a long time fan of trees and such, and as a new arrival to the wonderful pacific coast I figure its about damn time to get my boots dirty. I'm currently living north of ocean shores, WA, and am looking for others who enjoy exploring the oftentalked about/rarely seen wonders of the Hoh Rain Forest and other beautiful places.

I'm into all forms of recreating in the outdoors, and have experience rock ...

Ptarmigan Traverse

Couple of questions for those of you with experience with the Ptarmigan Traverse. My daughter has finally expressed an interest in going mountaineering and we have tentative plans to do the traverse North to South around the third week of July this year. A little background might be in order, so that responses are appropriate. I have been mountaineering and rock climbing for over forty years including several seasons guiding both rock and mountain routes. ...

Mount Adams Summit Mount Adams Summit

Hey guys! I'm thinking about climbing up Mount Adams with a friend this weekend. Anyone know about the current conditions? The national weather/avalanche forecast said there is increased danger.... Would I be ok with just iceaxe/crampons or is there enough powder where snowshoes would be required? Thanks!!

Mount Hood

I've done summer and winter hiking and some light mountaineering here in the Adirondacks and a buddy and I have talked about a road trip to Portland. Being less than 2 hours away, and me being drawn to the mountains, Mount Hood obviously has a lot of pull. Just fit the sake of considering it, I was wondering about Mount Hood in June-August. I am somewhat familiar of the South Side Route and plently of ...
