looks like somthing out of the lord of the rings.
What route is this...?
Based on the other photo thumbnailed under this mountain section, I'd say that this is in an area called Hogsback. The other photo labels it as such and is a shot from further away, but you can match up the lanscape between the two photos.
Yeah, that's the Hogsback, Chute and Pearly Gates on the south side. There are probably a dozen or more shots of this on the Mt. Hood page.
looks like like something out of my best climbing fantasies
Unique photo of a much photographed part of the mountain.
That's some seriously thick rime.
