View from the summit

From the summit looking south at Mt. Hood. Cathedral Ridge is center with Yocum Ridge along the right. Sandy Headwall is between them. North Face of Hood is left of Cathedral Ridge and you can see the bergschrund near the top of the Sunshine Route. Man, what a view!

Re: Is that the next

Ha. But Cathedral Ridge, the North Face and definitely Leuthold are on the list.... Hiked up to the Hogsback Saturday and the Gates were vertical. Need more snow!

Re: great view

Sorry, two different topics of conversation. This photo was taken in May and I was talking to Radek about this past weekend trying to do the South Side of Hood.

Yeah, at least this past Saturday (12/2/06), the Pearly Gates on the South Side looked near vertical with mixed snow and rock. A belay and protection would have been necessary from what we could see.

Cathedral Ridge

This is one of the best shots of CR that I have seen. Thanks for posting it. It's a tedious approach, but I want to do it. Not sure if starting at Timberline is best or heading straight up from Lolo Pass. Might as well do both so I'll know!

Re: Cathedral Ridge

Thanks very much. This is one of the routes I have not done yet and have thought about. Let me know how it is and I'll see if I want to put myself through the suffering. ;- )

Re: nice

Thanks for the nice words. Yeah, definitely a different perspective than you normally see for Hood.
