“A high-difficulty summit slope leads to an intermediate runout.”— Dave Burny
The bottom of this is intermediate, but the top is serious. From the summit, the first 1000 ft is no-fall double black for sure, but an easy fun ride after that. Make no mistake about the difficulty of this line—around a dozen climbers and skiers have died on this route due to falls.
This route is primarily used by ski mountaineers after climbing to the summit of Mt. Hood. It is not recommended for anyone without the proper skills and training. For those looking for a less technical ski, the bottom section can be a great and safer option.
