Location:Broken Top

Eleven O’Clock Couloir is another locals’ favorite. Just left of the center face of Broken Top, Eleven O’Clock Couloir snakes it’s way up the main face of the open bowl.  Steep snow followed by wrapping around the other side of the peak to the summit makes for an awesome objective.  This climb on Broken Top is best done as a spring climb when the snow is nice and filled in on the route.  Broken Top has the best winter access of any of the peaks in the Central Oregon Cascades. We use snowmobiles to access the wilderness line. There is still a significant approach on foot.

"I am very happy with my TMG experience. The guides were professional, personable, and extremely concerned about safety. . . I absolutely give highest marks to these guys. If you don't have much Alpine experience, or just want the security of seasoned veterans guiding you up this mountain, then I strongly recommend you sign up with them. Thanks, guys, for a great experience!!"

"What a fantastic experience gaining the summit of a mountain we've gazed on from Portland for 25 years! . . . We learned a great deal, had a ton of fun, felt in very capable hands, and had the reward of summiting on a beautiful clear day. The value of being with a professional, certified, guide and guiding organization was evident throughout. Kudos to the TMG team who were responsive, supportive, and fun to work with every step of the way."

"We booked 2-day overnight program on Mt. Hood with Timberline Mountain Guides. Our guides were great, . . super friendly and reputable. The program did not go as planned due to inclement weather but we still had fun and good experience. The guides were definitely flexible and provided guidance during the trip. I would recommend going with them if it's your first climbing trip on Mt. Hood for sure."
