I'm wondering what conditions are likely to be found on Mount Adams in late September / early October of this year. I'm interested in non-technical routes... of course, crampons and ice axe are fine, but I prefer to climb solo and unroped. Naturally, my potential concerns anywhere in the Cascades would be rockfall, icy conditions, crevasse danger, avalanches, and road access.
I climbed Mount Shasta and Mount Hood in the spring last year and both were pretty mellow dayhikes, but neither would have ideal (or even safe) conditions by their standard routes in the fall. Rainier and Baker are not mountains I would like to attempt solo. I'm hoping that Mount Adams might be a viable option. Any other suggestions? Mount Jefferson is probably too difficult. Sisters? McLoughlin?
