I'm looking for good peaks and routes to attempt in the Cascades or the volcanoes. Eldorado Peak's East Ridge is a good one I'm looking at, anything similar in terms of difficulty (or lack thereof), positioning and scenery? Mount Hood's standard South Side Route is tempting as well, but the described crowds seem a bit of a distraction. Nolan Huther

Check out Jim Nelson's guidebooks "Selected Climbs in the Cascades" Vol 1 &2. Great stuff to keep you busy and a good starting point as far as beta goes. Maxgl

Great recommendations! I'll look into the guidebook- coming from Upstate NY I'm not exactly a local and not familiar with a lot of this region Nolan Huther

I wouldn't go up the gully on SEWS now. It is melted out already and just a choss pile of crap w/o snow. Really sketchy for party induced rockfall.

If you're already out on cascade river road Sahale is gorgeous. Some exposed rock scramble, you can rap off the summit, nothing too technical.

Snowfield peak is a good one.

Black peak.
