Activity Notes

Join us for an early season climb of Leuthold Couloir. When safe, this western route can offer a fresh experience on Mt Hood. Apply if interested, and we'll mutually confirm when weather opens a date. Trending to Thursday, 2/20.

SKILLS REQUIRED

  • Comfortable on 40° snow with exposure
  • Optimism to motivate teammates
  • Fitness to hike with cursory breaks, ~1000' / hour
  • Glacier techniques, including crevasse rescue and snow anchors.

This route may have steps of alpine ice, an airy ridge, and crevasse potential; suitable to prior Hood climbers ready for a bit more challenge. Smoot rates AI1-2, grade II.  As a winter climb, expect darkness, continuous winds, and potential need for double boots. If skies are sunny and calm, bring something to share for the summit!
