Fantastic

Radek,



Great photo of the route! The others are nice too. Much better than mine. Thanks for adding to the route page.



How did you like the route? Steep snow is fun!

Re: Fantastic

Thanks Martin.



I was going to say that feel free to rearrange the photos on the route page as you see fit (I got a couple more I was hoping to add - I did not mean to displace the ones from you - just wanted to make sure these route shots are attached to the route page). I'll drop ones that people feel are redundant/no good (given the zillion shots on the hood page).



We were just passengers on this one (& given our conditioning to date slow ones at that) but it was more fun (& in a prettier setting) than I expected. It ain't no rock but pretty cool nevertheless :) ...just kidding - good stuff!

Re: Fantastic

Nice new profile photo! Looks fun. Did you guys try to TR a certain route next to it too?

Re: Fantastic

Thanks Martin.

:)

heh, heh.....now what route could that possibly be?



Just kidding. No we did not TR it as Toys was the last climb of the day (no energy) but I did try to get a look at pro opportunities on HB on the rap down. I think I saw that pocket where you placed the yellow Alien. Looks to be the only opportunity there but it's more of a flaring pod I think (=scary section; you were I think at the curx at that point from the look of things). Above that placement, you reach this flake and at that point you can get some bomber (thinking like red Alien or #.75 Camalot) pro in all the way to the anchor. It also looked as though once you reach the flake, the climbing eases a tad (finger/thin hand jams?? behind the flake??).



Anway, that baby's got your name all over it! Next time you're down there (or next time we meet up down there)..something to work on.

Re: Fantastic

I finally got around to rearranging the photos on the route page, so all of your great shots are shown. Thanks for your additions.

Wish I was there.

You have a number of impressive shots of Mt. Hood. I can't wait to save the money and head out there.

Great series

I was almost "shocked" to see that you did something with snow on it after all those great trips you've made to Utah. This is a very nice series of pics of your Mt. Hood effort. Quite the contrast from Canyonlands. I spent the past week in Utah and Nevada and hit crappy weather everywhere. Poured rain in Utah and had thunderstorms in Nevada. Should have stayed home. : )

Re: Great series

Thank you Dean!

Can't get out to Moab every weekend (unfortunately ;) - this was actually pretty nice (away from the crowded hogsback).

Sorry to hear about the wet weather you hit in the SW! I know how much that sucks after you invest time, $$, and effort of getting down there only to be turned away by wet weather....(happened a lot to us this winter). Oh well, there's always the next trip and a hope of better weather.
