For some reason, I've wanted to scramble Mount Hood for quite a while already. So when Wietse and Kelly were thinking of which scramble to do around the Kananaskis Lakes area I was quick to suggest that one and invite myself along. We set out at around 08:00 from the King Creek parking lot on a gorgeous July 19 2008. Many previous trip reports on this mountain indicate that people have a tendency to get lost on the approach. We briefly considered ascending King Creek Ridge first and then descending the 200 meters to the saddle between KKR and Mount Hood just to avoid the hassles but after reading Dow William's trip report we decided that if the creek wasn't ridiculously high we would just follow it.
