Mount Hood, as the highest peak in Oregon, stands as a real life icon over the state.  Each year thousands of people climb to its summit in the clouds, yet it is always a challenging undertaking.  Catlin Gabel will sponsor an attempt to reach the 11,245 foot summit this summer on Sunday June 13th and Monday June 14th. 

Students should be in excellent physical condition in order to sign up for the trip, although they do not need previous mountaineering experience.  Two conditionin hikes will prepare the group for the climb. On Sunday we will travel to Timberline Lodge and go through a basic snow school designed to get students ready for the rigors of the mountain. That night we will stay in the Huckleberry Inn in Government Camp. On Monday we will rise early and make our attempt on the summit.

Graduating Seniors should not sign up for this trip as it will be on the day after the overnight graduation event.


The Trip is open to students 14-18 years of age.

The cost of the trips is $95, which includes transportation, leadership, lodging, dinner and breakfast before the climb, two training hikes, the snow school, and the climb.
