The Mt. Hope thread looked lonely so I thought I'd chime in.

SurfNTurf and I will be attempting Mt. Hope on one of the days, but we're not committing to which day until we get a better idea of conditions as the week goes on.

Look forward to a trip report or pics afterwards. I want to try and hit it the following week or so :)

What he said. We'll probably do it on the least-popular day. Also planning a really, really early start.

Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Anyone looking to ski Hopeful? I might have a free day.

I am still figuring out my weekend but it looks like the good news is that I am free Friday and Saturday but the bad news is I cannot climb Sunday. So, I need to bet on the weather being suitable on Saturday for climbing.

It turns out I will not be able to join the group this weekend. Too many time pressures and obligations this week. I am going to miss not having the chance to join you all. Next time!

Anyone have recent beta/photos on Hopeful? The avy discussions in the Missouri Mountain thread probably apply here, as well.
