Beautiful Mount Hood and Whitney

We first started with Mount Hood via the Leuthold Couloir, then Mount Whitney via the Mountaineer's Route. The video ends in Death Valley with Manly Beacon which is located in Golden Canyon. This was an incredible series of adventures which I always tell myself "I cannot Live the Adventure of a Life Time just Once!". To see the latest pictures from this trip click here.



Enjoy! :-D

Voted 10/10

but it's "couloir" not "coulior". I know the route page owner spelled it incorrectly so maybe that threw ya. I've attempted that route 7 times now and always had tons of ice coming down. Looks like you got it in nice conditions. Great job!

That explains it. I copied and pasted the title from the page because I often times have a hard time spelling out couloir. Firefox's spellchecker considers it misspelled when you spell it right. As for the conditions, everything was very solid. I hear it's possible to climb this route when things are a little more snowy to make traveling easier rather than many patches of water ice. It was manageable considering that we had crampons, ice axe, and an ice tool.
