Mt. Hood  Sucess!

I joined a party of six other climbers, Tim from St.Louis, Dave from Rapid City,SD, Mike and Al from Mass, Kent from Titusville, NJ, and Mike from Portland. Guided by Eric and Bob with Timberline Mountain Guides, we began our ascent (after taking the snow cat up to 8500 feet) at 2:30am. After making only two stops (I would have preferred a couple more)we summited at 6:30am. Virtually no wind. Clear skies. Quite a beautiful mountain. We were soon joined at the top by an 80 year-old man from Las Vegas and his 46 year-old son along with another Timberline Mountain guide. Thought to be the oldest to have ever made the summit of Mt Hood.

Lots of wind

Got close, but the snow and wind was really going strong. I liked Timberline lodges hot chocolate though!

August ascent - Old Chute  Sucess!

August ascent, great weather, a little warm. Started at timberline around 2:30. Summit at 8:30. Route was in, snow pack was frosted with ice and gave good crampon purchase. Climbed old chute route, but we actually ascended the chute the the right of the old chute. It was rotten crumbly rock. Only had rockfall once, was small pebbles. No snow/ice in this chute, hogsback was nice, schrund was open 10 foot high and 30-40 ft wide. descended same rotten chute. Had lots of naysayers about climbing at this time, glad we ignored them!

Hogback / Old Chute  Sucess!

Another day hike, started at 3 am. Weather was cooler than my CS attempt. Snow really nice and firm. Bergschrund and Hogback placement sent me up the chutes to the left. Really enjoyable. Took the lower lift back to Timberline. Only thing that was not great was listening to the snow graders all morning, felt like I was walking through a construction site.

Cooper Spur

Day hike during a heat wave - started at the road closure below 4k'. Started hiking at 1 am. Didn't make it to the steep stuff until after 9 am. Decided to turn around around 11:30. Snow was getting really sloppy and I was running on too little sleep and too few calories.

Hogsback/Old Chute  Sucess!

Left the Timberline Lodge parking at 12:15 am, went up via the Old Chute, with a nice traverse in fresh snow along the ridge. Were back at the car at noon.

First Climb  Sucess!

This was my first climb ever. It was a perfect day. I hiked up to the lift with someone, then I went on by myself. Great first experience, so now I am looking for the another one. I am from and living in Florida, so if anyone has any suggestions I would love some. Thanks!

All ice hike  Sucess!

Hiked this on a perfect sunny day. Solo hike. No equipment (I got a lot of hate mail for it - see my trip report). Easy hike except the Old Chute which was all ice.

South Side late season  Sucess!

The route was pretty out of shape and soft, but was a great climb. Took a left at crater rock across fumaroles and up Old Chute. Blessed to see the sunrise from the crater rim.

Off season summit

We picked an odd time of year but still had a fun climb. Camped overnight and ascended the Hogsback dodging some rockfall along the way. There were butterflies on the summit! It was a lovely sunny day.

Old Chute route, State HP #34  Sucess!

We started out around 12:30am on a crystal clear night, as we hiked into the cool darkness. We did NOT take the snocat up to the top of the lifts either. The trail got steeper the higher you climbed. The weather was great, having no winds at all, and 28 deg temps on the summit. The Old Chute was veeeeery steep, but had boot prints clearly on the right side. We roped up, and had no problems. What a great accomplishment for my lady and I, pheww! State High Point #34......

Sunny but windy day  Sucess!

Originally intended to spend the night at Illumination Saddle but ended up dumping gear and decided to summit on Monday as there was a storm predicted early Tuesday which was when we had planned to climb. Went up the lower West Crater Rim and then joined up with the route up the Old Chute. Sunny but windy day on the summit. Down the traditional South Side route and then traversed back over to our camp at the saddle. Stayed overnight and the slog down the next morning after a couple hours of rain (and warm temperatures) was not a lot of fun. HP #17

Old Chute  Sucess!

Started just before midnight. The snow at Timberline was very soft as the temperature was very mild. Luckily, snow conditions higher up were perfect and there was zero wind. Got to the top to witness a gorgeous sunrise!

The Old Chute route was is good condition as there are solid boot steps to follow up. The Bergschrund was about 30 feet wide which was impressive. Super fun trip.

Mt Hood  Sucess!

Normal route from timberline lodge. Started at 3 pm and summited at 8 pm, which was ok. Bergschrund is wide open so we did the old chute route. Which is in good condition. No rock fall, just some ice fall from other climbers. Nothing serious though.

Great conditions  Sucess!

Summited just as the sun was rising. Beautiful. Took the Old Chute, as the bergschrund was already open 5 or 6 feet. Advise to others would be to ski down from top of lift - slog down was the only downfall of an awesome day. #16 HP.
