This intensive three day program includes two days of skill based instruction followed by a summit attempt via one of the routes on the south side of Mount Hood.
Day 1: Steep Snow Climbing Course in which we instruct all of the skills that you will need for our summit attempt
Day 2: Anchors and Belaying for Advanced Snow Climbing course provides a great base of mountaineering skills.
On the third day, we will take a snow cat ride to the top of Timberline Ski Area and the Palmer Glacier; from there we will attempt an ascent of Mount Hood via one of the South Side routes. The choice of the climbing route will depend on weather and conditions on the mountain as well as the group’s overall ability and inclination. This is an excellent program for those wanting to learn more advanced mountaineering skills.
