At the top of the ski run. Time for crampons. 4:21am.
Above the Bergshrund heading for the Pearly Gates
Approaching the Pearly Gates. Other climbers are ahead of us.
Approaching the Pearly Gates the snow became very icy
Bottleneck in the Pearly Gates. I just prayed no one slipped.
Summit of Mt Hood. 6:10am. Summit time: 3 hrs 16 mins (less for Bob).
Steep and icy. This would be a bad place to slip.
Heading down toward the ski slope. Unfortunately it's too icy for a glissade.
