    Climbed on October 12. Beautiful day with expansive views. 99% snow free, only a couple very minor skiffs. About 20 hikers total. 15-20 mph winds on top. Need a jacket at top but mild down below. Very strenuous, my 58 year old legs & knees are still burning. But what a view!! Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Washington, Three Fingered Jack, Middle Sister, North Sister, Thielson?, Mary's Peak, Bachelor, Black Butte, and more!

    Tried to hike on Saturday 10/11/2014, but the weather was rainy even though other forecasts said 0% chance of rain. Luckily the Sunday forecast on this site was very accurate, and I was able to reach the summit. It was fairly warm during the hike, so it seems that October can be a good month for this climb.
