Description

Mount Hood (3,429m) is an extraordinary peak for a number of reasons, including its beauty and accessibility. However, another wonderful aspect of the peak is the varied ways from which you can climb it. As a result, while it is popular because of the relative ease you can reach the summit by way of the South side route, there are also other, far more challenging routes you can take to the top. And for the purpose of this 2 day journey, we will be taking those challenging routes. Thus giving you a thrilling, and difficult, but ultimately very satisfying climbing experience.

The selection of challenging spots on Mount Hood that you will be visiting on this trip include Leuthold’s Couloir, the Wy’East route and the West Crater Rim. All of those spots, along with several others, will test  your skills and push your abilities to their limits, and perhaps even further, until we reach the summit, where you can enjoy the fantastic views!

Due to the advanced level of this trip, it is important that participants have a great deal of prior mountaineering experience. It is also imperative that participants are in excellent physical condition. Furthermore, in an effort to help you advance your already seasoned experience, we will also be offering lessons and tips on several advanced level techniques during this trip. Those lessons include steep snow climbing techniques, anchors and belaying, how to transition on multi-pitch snow and ice climbs, and much more.  This will ensure that your already seasoned skills will be even more improved by the end of the trip.

If you are looking for a challenge, this advanced level trip to the top of Mount Hood is for you. And all you have to do to be a part of it is send us a request.
