      Climbing Mt. Hood

      by JJfromNJ Online Now Sep 29, 2010 at 12:21 PM

      I am interested in climbing Mt. Hood with a friend in mid October. Neither of us have much mountaineering experience, although I have summited Kilimanjaro and a few smaller peaks in the Adirondacks. Some sources say that after July, conditions become hazardous. Is it too dangerous to attempt a climb this time of year? Should we hire a guide or can we do it ourselves? It's a short trip, so we want to limit it to a 1 day hike if possible. I assume we would start at the Timberline Lodge?

      I'm kinda surprised not to find clear info on this online, just looking for someone to point me in the right direction. Thanks.
