Do you already have a bunch of glaciated peaks under your belt and looking to get out on some steeper climbs? Our two day Advanced Climbing Program on Mount Hood will build on your previous experience introducing technical skills for steep snow climbs. We’ll cover movement for steep snow climbs, anchors and belaying and how to efficiently transition on multi-pitch snow and ice climbs.
On the second day of the program we will take a snow cat to the top of the Palmer Glacier and the boundary of Timberline Ski Area. From there we will set our sights on some of the more challenging climbs on Mount Hood like Leuthold’s Couloir, West Crater Rim or the Wy’East route.
This two day program is a great opportunity to build on previous experience combined with a more advanced climb.
