Southside/Hogsback route. Pearly Gates variation.

The last trip of the year, and fortunately it was a really good one. Conditions for climbing were excellent. Ski conditions...not so much. Everything above the Palmer lift was a sheet of ice.

Quite a few parties were heading up in the morning, though still nothing like you would see in the spring.

No flotation needed as long as you stay on the cat track. After that, it turns into bullet proof ice.

The Pearly Gates were very icy, and a second tool was handy.

Thanks for the report.  I've been thinking about getting up here this winter during a good window and was wondering how things were looking.

I like this one. It's so typical Hood to have all those cliff rocks plastered in snow. Pearly Gates for sure.
