Definitely one of the most picturesque peaks in the stunning Cascades mountain range in Oregon, Mount Hood (3,429m) is a fantastic and easy mountain to climb. Hence making this 2 day ascent a very accessible climbing adventure. However, it is important that participants on this trip be in excellent physical condition.

This 2 day climbing trip is a combination of learning and fun. For half of the trip, we will focus on teaching you various climbing techniques that will prove useful not just on the climb of Mount Hood, but also for future climbs as well. A few examples of the kind of techniques we will teach and you will practice include rope systems, how to properly use crampons and an ice axe, footwork in mountain boots and much more.

The second half of the trip will revolve around the climbing of Mount Hood. The most popular route to the summit is the South side route, which we will be taking. This route is very scenic and even features some variations, including Old Chute and the Pearly Gates. The total time for the ascent and descent will take approximately 8 to 10 hours. And while the chances of reaching the summit are usually very good, there is always the possibility that we will not be able to as a result of inclement weather. However, we will do our best to get you there safely, so you can enjoy the spectacular views!

Are you looking for an accessible climbing adventure on one of the most beautiful peaks in the United States? If so, ascending Mount Hood on this 2 day expedition will most certainly satisfy you. So send us a request and join us for a trip that will be exciting, as well as educational. Thus ensuring you have many more great climbs in the future.
