We couldn't have asked for better weather. Dodging dislodged rock was great fun. Spent nearly an hour on the summit and summit ridge- just after sunrise.

Midnight start in the moonlight. Sunrise from the summit. Perfect weather. Stinky fumeroles. Awesome friends.

Great climb with my friend up the Old Chute. A little crowded but not too bad.

Bluebird day. Gorgeous moment when the mountain cast a hundred mile triangle into the pacific ocean. Able to see Rainier, Sisters, and Adams from summit.

The weather gave us a short window, just enough to let us reach the summit. Great climb.

Soloed the route from the top of Palmer after my partner led the guy we were guiding back down from there (he was from the Philippines and had never touched snow before). Lots of falling ice on the route once it traversed to the Old Chute from the Hogsback. I took a softball-size chunk off my helmet.

We climbed through the fumaroles to avoid ice falling across the standard traverse on a warm day.

Made it to the top despite being seriously socked in. I'm definitely going to do it again with good weather.

The weather was perfect and the fumaroles were potent. The trek seemed much longer than anticipated. Once the sun came out, the snow softened up rather quickly. Beautiful scenery and many good conversations with other travelers. Then went back solo on June 15, to give my dad a special "Fathers Day" message from the summit.

Early season conditions. The weather was perfect! Chunky loose ice from Palmer to Crater Rock turning to the soft stuff all the way to nearly the summit. The hogsback is way left again this year. The Pearly Gate chutes look technical and slow, so I think the Old Chute Variation will be the standard south side route for a while. We didn't use a rope, but I could have used a second tool.

With the bergschrund wide open and everyone else going to the old chute I had to follow. Summitted in 3:15 from Timberline less than 24hrs after Mt. Adams summit

Great route and day with Ben from Timberline Mountain Guides and my father. Took the 4 am snowcat to the top of Palmer lift and then started out. Amazing early morning views under an almost full moon. Sun came out and stayed for the duration of the day. Route was fine with moving up about Crater Rock and to the summit plateau. Pearly Gates looked rather sketchy though from the Hogsback. Two other climbers moved up the Hogsback to do the Pearly Gates then ended up backtracking and moving up the Old Chute variation instead.

Mr. ClamWhat a day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 1, 2007

Mr. Clam

Woke up at 5:00 AM wednesday morning and worked untill 5:00 PM, then went to a college class from 6 - 8, then drove to mount hood ariving around midnight, started climbing close to 1AM, reached the summit at 4:45 and was back at the car at 6:30, then drove back home just in time for class at 11.

All in all a very enjoyable climb, perfect weather except for a few unsettleing gusts on the summit ridge.

mbollinoFun alternative to South Side  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 29, 2007

Amazing to see the upper mountain changing so much. The new variation is slightly steeper and more exposed than the Pearly gates version. The catwalk along the summit ridge also makes it a bit more spicy. I did encounter a moderate amount of ice coming from the cliffs above the traverse. One softball size chunk missed by a foot or so. Attention to time of day/ temperature/ sun exposure should be considered when calculating time for the route. Go earlier than would be normal for the Pearly gates.

Brian JenkinsNice twist on the South Side route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 28, 2007

Originally had aimed on doing Leuthold Couloir but there was a definite temperature inversion and high winds so we opted for the South Side. 19 degrees in Government Camp at 1 am, 29 at Timberline at 1:10 am and probably 40 degrees at the Silcox Hut about 2:45 am. Very windy (about 60 mph) but by the time we got to about 9500 feet, it was sunny, windless and warm. Think we made the right decision though as Leuthold would have been a rain of ice.

My partner had been up since the morning before so we actually napped for half an hour or so at Triangle Moraine. When we got to the Hogsback, it was odd how much further left it was from even the month before. The standard route at least right now is the Old Chute Variation. Was a nice change with a bit more exposure. Had the summit with one other climber but the hordes were coming behind us. Lots of climbers once we were back down to the Hogsback. Back home by mid-afternoon.
