The route is about the same difficulty
level as the Hogsback/Pearly Gates route but
longer with a bit more exposure. It averages
around 40-45 degrees, maybe give or take 5
degrees. A fall on the traverse could possibly
end up with you in a fumarole. The traverse
over to the true summit is also an exposed
knife edge in one spot. Don't
underestimate this route as everyone
seems to think of Hood as a walk-up (although
most years there are accidents and/or deaths)
- We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines at all times while participating in ACC VA events.
