Half Hood (turned into full Hood)

May 12 to May 13, 2018

Coordinator: Noël Tavan

Elevation Gain: 2800 feet
Round-trip Distance: 6 miles
Excursion Time: 7 hours (car-to-car)

Climb school students are welcome and encouraged to join. Please let me know when you have graduated from climb school and who your instructors were. We would meet at the Climber's cave around midnight (located at the entrance of the day use lodge). Assistant and Experienced climbers are welcome if they would like to help me lead this event.

Please consider a Hood half climb before attempting a summit. This is a great conditioning hike to test out your gears (mountaineering boots, crampons, ice axe, backpack, layers etc...) as well as food intake and sleep deprivation.

AT skis and split boards are also welcome!

Please email me your details and questions at or you are welcome to add it as a comment on this page.

I will start approving participants after climb school (May 6th) to give this year's students the chance to sign up.
