Is Hood Doable in August?

I've searched websites and forums for info on what Hood is like now in July and what it might be like in August.

Reason is I will be in the vicinity in mid August and wouldn't mind climbing Hood again. I know it's not generally recommended then because of rockfall, but I'm wondering if conditions this year might have made that different. Thanks!

Mt Baker

Three of us aimed for Mt. Herman from the middle parking lot near the Bagley Lake trail. Got off route to summit, but close and we'll know next time. The road is now plowed all the way to Artist Point, but a lot of snow still up there. I thought some one had posted Mt Herman but I am not finding it? Anyway, numerous skiers and many tracks coming off Table Mountain into the ...

Ski's and Boots found on Mt McLoughlin, OR

I found a pair of ski's and boots about 750' from the summit in some trees. I brought them down with me after asking everyone on the summit and trail to no avail. I can't tell how long they were there but possibly a week or more. I will hold on to them until the owner finds them.

Give me a call, Tom 541-380-1580

Insulated boots needed for Mt Adams in late Sept?

Hello, first time climber here. Mt Adams seemed like a good starter (even if grueling) as it was "non technical". Since we are just starting to gear up, we are trying to keep upfront costs down.

Are insulated boots needed for a Mt Adams climb in late Sept?

Washington Pass Area


Snow melting out fast on HWY 20. Parking Lots at Blue Lake not open yet, but close. Cars parked all along the highway at Cutthroat, Blue Lake, Hairpin turn, Silver Star. No, I did not hike or climb, family day enjoying the scenery and food in Winthrop.

West Rib of Jefferson?

Anyone done this route? Looks like one of the most straightforward routes on the mountain. Says it's an "early season" route, but not sure how to interpret that since the summit pinnacle typically isn't really in shape until late June early July.
