Hi Nathan (or whomever!) I'll be meeting you soon at Basic mountaineering course. I would Love to summit Hood however I have NO experience what so ever with mountaineering. I do a lot of hiking and backpacking and rock climbing, but not mountaineering. I wanted to be very upfront :) so you could let me know if this is even an option for me. Thanks!

Nathan answers:
Kara, We'll talk about just that at climb school. Hood is definitely realistic for you this season.
