Wonderful climb  Sucess!

My first glacier climb ever; I went with the Timberline Guide service knowing my novice experience level. Party of 3, we travelled fast and made great time. Surreal climbing in the middle of the night to the bergschrund, then some tricky stepping over that chasm. Summitted just after 6 a.m. in very windy, cold conditions. Careful climb down and back at the lodge just in time for a late breakfast. Wonderful mountain - an easy beginner's glacier peak but not one to be taken lightly, ever.

under prepared, on top of the mountain  Sucess!

Made this climb before my proper introduction to crampons and ice axe. Tennis shoes, shorts, and a T proved sufficient. Having learned a few lessons in the meantime, I would recommend boots to anyone preparing for Hood.

Hood thrice  Sucess!

All in the 1990s.
First via Hogsback with my daughter. This was number 30 of my 49 state high points, number 29 for Vanessa.
Next via Leuthold Coulour with my daughter and Jim Hinkhouse, founder of OSAT. This is a marvelously esthetic classic coulour route, but do it when the conditions are right. We had nice firm alpine ice, but a few pebbles zipped by like stray bullets, so bring your flack jacket.
Last summit was a winter ascent in 1998 or 1999 with OSAT.

Standard south side  Sucess!

Climbed with Ben from Timberline Mountain Guides out of Bend. This means we got a snowcat ride to the top of the lift! Summitted at 8:30 AM and was back to the lodge by 11:30 AM.

South side Date climbed: June 1988  Sucess!

Went with a Mazamas group, stayed at Mazama lodge. Very nice day, no clouds. Very crowded on the hogsback, had to wait over an hour to ascend.

Southside old chute  Sucess!

Soft snow characterized the headwall of the old chute. Easy climbing for the most part. A very cool peak especially with the Hell's Kitchen below. Hogsback was way out.

Hogsback  Sucess!

Climbed through a blizzard while covered in rime ice until the Hogsback. Hogsback was a little scary but we had ample protection in. 2 days later those 3 people fell and were helicoptered off. So I guess I was right to be a little concerned. Summit was cloudy but we got a brief clear spot every now and then. Kudos to the TMG guys for a good climb

Late Season Climb  Sucess!

Took the Old Chute route, as the 'schrund below the Pearly Gates was wide open and icy. Nice route, easy climbing.

South Side / Hogsback  Sucess!

A nice Independence Day climb with Brian. Summited at 4:50am and watched the sunrise, then back to Timberline Lodge by 7:00am. A large stack of pancakes followed soon after.

Trip #8  Sucess!

Jeff Totten and I climbed from Timberline (4:30 am) to the summit without problems. The weather was good and the company on the summit was limited (while we were there) to about 4 other guys. We did the standard route though the usual gap (Pearly Gates) was clogged up with snow and people so we took a hard left at the top of the Hogsback and went through a shorter, slightly steeper gap that served us just as well. Hood is the best mountain for a person with a family. We were home for lunch with the kids.

South side  Sucess!

Great climb. Original plan was the Eliot glacier but road conditions and time contraints forced us up the hogsback. Beatiful weather, and started raining 5 minutes after we made it back to the car! Almost witnessed a fistfight at the pearly gates as some a-holes skipped the line to get down as we were waiting for some slow climbers to come up. Not a place for solitude.
