Thanks climberboy, having climbed hood many times it just seems people under estimate how fast things can change with the Oregon weather at this time of the year. My heart condolience to their families. after the out ward bound school mess I thought that you had to wear a beacon to help SAR. We take controled risks every time we climb but they should be an educated one, and all factors taken into play.

The highest peak is Whitney, right? An instructor took a group of I believe 18 up Mt. Hood and only 3 came down . Found in a snow cave with some that were not as lucky. Instructor went off the canyon that runs along the mircle mile. Very sad at this time of the year for any family to have to go thru. Saw the interview with the widow this morning, couldnt help but shed a tear for them. Take care Happy Holidays, climbing Humphries and going to ski down this weekend..Feliz Navidad..
