I'm looking for a route recommendation for Hood or Adams (flying into Portland) over Labor Day weekend. Steep snow and easy-to-moderate ice. Would prefer a glacier route and will not be bringing rock pro.
Did Fuhrer Finger on Rainier that time last year and dealt with rockfall (mostly due to a late start), rotten snow, and messy glaciers. I figure that's par for the course by September.
Anyone find a good time on the snow late August?

There are some routes that should be ROCK-fall free

Not to sound snarky, but isn't once a season enough for Hood SS?

If climbing solely for the joy of it, or "because it's there," or whatever, then I'd say once a lifetime is probably adequate. At least for the Old Chute... there are other interesting routes up the south side I'd like to do again someday.
One of these is guiding, the other is for time.
