Mount Hood, South Route

Considering it was raining on the drive to the mountain, the weather was exceptional. Six started and six summitted, three for the first time. First ascents were by Greg MacCrone, Greg Swanson and Karin Margosian. Rich Margosian, Eric Aldinger and I were the other climbers. Greg Huld called to ask about conditions. Soft snow, slow going for the ascent but a luxury on the way down.
