Activity Notes

If you are interested in this Mt. Hood climb that will occur some time during February, possibly early March, submit an application. This is a winter climb so the actual climb dates will be determined based on weather conditions. Once I have picked final dates, I will contact you by email with more details about the climb. If you’re able to participate given the climb dates, I’ll accept you on the climb. You will not be charged until you’re accepted.

-------------------------------------------------

Mt. Hood / Cooper Spur: grade III, moderate-to-high angle snow

This climb requires...

  • training with axe/crampons, self-arrest, and team rope travel
  • moderate physical fitness, all-day energy
  • moderate amount of snow climbing experience

This route is comparable to scale/scope as Leuthold Couloir, or Sunshine routes of Mt. Hood. Applicants should feel equally prepared to participate in those climbs, before applying to this one.

This will be a single day climb the Cooper Spur route of Mt. Hood. We will start, and end at Timberline Lodge, circumnavigating over to the Cooper Spur from the south side.

-------------------------------------------------

As a note, when assembling climbers for a Mazama climb, I deliberately strive for a diverse, and balanced team. I principally take into consideration an individual's physical fitness, skill level for the route, and how they can contribute to the climb team’s diversity. Diversity consideration especially applies to the selection of the assistant and lead climber(s), to help expand the diversity in prospective Climb Leaders in the Mazamas.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or the assistant.
