    Mount Hood (3,429 m) is a stratovolcano that belongs to the Cascade Range, in the U S state of Oregon. The Reid Glacier Headwall route is located on the west side of the mountain and is one of its longest and most advanced climbing routes to the Mt Hood summit.

    During this one day climb, participants cross the Reid Glacier and then face a steep and difficult ascent. Once at the top of the headwall, the final climb before the summit presents some important obstacles, including ice towers, and should not be underestimated. The descent is done through one of the southside routes.

    Only advanced climbers with extensive mountaineering experience should attempt to climb Mt. Hood via Reid Glacier Headwall.
