Participant Information

Mt. Hood, OR - South Side route
Because certain omnipresent volatile alpine factors can't be predicted (e.g. weather, conditions), the date of this trip can only be approximate, it may move in either direction, not unlikely on a very short note (1-2 days prior to the actual trip). As long as "registered" list is empty, consider this trip as "standing-by".
