Mt. Hood in the Pacific Northwest of the United States in Northern Oregon is located in the Cascade Mountains. It is located about 50 miles (80 km) east of the city of Portland, Oregon. Mt. Hood stands at 11,235 ft (3,424 m), and is considered dormant. Mt Hood, is the highest mountain in Oregon and the fourth highest mountain in the Cascades. The highest point on continental US, Mt. Rainier in Washington state, stands at 14,411 ft (4,392 m) above sea level and can be a great climb to complete straight after Mt. Hood. We run a 3 day program including instruction and alpine skills for snow and glacier travel. Our aim is to give you knowledge of mountaineering skills which you can apply on other peaks. After the two days of instruction you will go for the summit via one of the south side routes up Mt. Hood. This will all depend on weather, group ability and snow conditions. We offer courses in May, June and July.
