Trip: Mt Hood - Ski Circumnavigation

Date: 5/7/2016

Trip Report:
Taylor had a big birthday to celebrate and wanted to do something epic. I've been around mt hood on skis   many years ago, but this time was a bit different. In later season, the route was a bit more complicated, with some open cracks requiring navigation, and sagging bridges on the Eliot called for roped skiing.

  FULL TRIP REPORT (more photos/beta)

Still, with good weather and a pretty casual pace, we finished it up in 8 hours and 40 minutes in pretty good style. It's a good way to earn yourself a big pizza dinner.


Tight Whips


Seracs on the Ladd/Coe


Faint ski tracks across and down the Eliot


Final traverse across the White River.

Gear Notes:
Atomic Ultimate 78s with speed superlight bindings, race skins. 25m 7mm rope, light crevasse rescue kit. Race packs. Alu spikes and axes.

Runcle, if you read my blog or most recent TR here, you'll see that I've got that one on lock.

It was not. Wish I could claim that.
