Mount Hood

Welcome to the Atlas Obscura Community discussion of Mount Hood in Mount Hood, Oregon. Ask questions or share travel tips, experiences, pictures, or general comments with the community. For the story behind this place, check out the Atlas Obscura entry:

5/7/16 - First attempt
5/6/17 - Successful attempt

Both attempts via Hogsback Route & Pearly Gates.

Please do your research, have the appropriate gear, and develop the skills to use it properly. Use a guide if necessary. Timberline Guides specializes on Hood; I did not use them but they were super chill in offering me beta when I called them asking about conditions.

People die here every year, and I am honestly surprised there are not more deaths. Lots of foolishness up there.

And you will not be alone.
