Mount Hood: Palmer Glacier / South Side & Sandy Headwall Routes Professional Review and Guide

"Mount Hood is one of the most frequently climbed big mountains in the United States. Sometimes called the Mount Fuji of North America, the volcano’s pleasing dagger-like shape as seen from nearby Portland—and much of Washington and Oregon, for that matter—attracts novices and experts alike.

Most climbers come to Mount Hood for the relatively straightforward ascent of the normal route, a few for the more remotely situated or technically challenging climbs elsewhere on the peak. But by any route, Mount Hood offers an outstanding mountaineering experience, with the ambience of a big peak and summit views south to the Sisters and Mount Jefferson, and north across the Columbia River to Mounts St. Helens, Adams, even Rainier and beyond on a clear day. Equipment: Ice ax, crampons, wands."
