Mt. Hood 11,240'

Standing 11,240 feet above the mighty Columbia River, Oregon’s highest peak offers technical climbing routes for the aspiring alpinist and is home to some classic alpine test pieces for the experienced climber.
Often noted as the second most climbed glaciated peak after Mt. Fuji, an ascent of Mt. Hood by any route is a technical climb requiring the use of ice axe and crampons.
With great access, climbers are treated to a technical climb on a big peak that is reasonably doable in one day- it’s as close to climbing in Europe one can get without the trans-Atlantic flight! The close proximity to a major metropolitan area, a road to 6,000 feet, as well as year round skiing makes Mt Hood an interesting place in general.
