Half Hood Climb

May 11, 2019

Coordinator: Ben Rosati

Summit Altitude: 8 feet
Elevation Gain: 2800 feet
Round-trip Distance: 5 miles
Excursion Time: 6 hours (car-to-car)

This event is geared toward newer climbers. Climb School students encouraged to join to test out their gear and fitness. Please let me know when you have graduated from climb school and who your instructors were. We will meet at the Climber's cave Friday night at 11:30PM (located at the entrance of the day use lodge).

Plan to bring enough gear, food, and water for a FULL Hood climb. This climb is meant to test out your systems. We will plan to leave around the same time as Noel's Squad, but will likely move slower than them.

If I have never met you. Please email me your details on previous climbing experience. Send details and questions at or you are welcome to add it as a comment on this page.

I will wait to approve climbers until after climb school to allow new students to join the group.
