The Mt Hood climbing report has been updated for this week; the Forest Service didn't roll the date, so it still looks like its from the 7th. The weather does not appear to be cooperating for those looking to climb:

The weather this weekend will make climbing challenging. We are forecasted to see moderate winds and rain on Saturday, with continued moderate winds, clouds and showers on Sunday. Rain at higher elevations could increase the rate of ice and rock fall.  Being aware of the weather conditions and the affects they will have on the climbing routes will be imperative if you choose to climb this weekend.
