Just saw on the news where a 29 year old woman fell 2500' off of the northeast side of Mt. Hood and died today. This is the the popular time to climb Mt. Hood, with a large number going up everyday. Those large numbers can bring a false sense of security. Always remember that Hood is fairly simple, but still dangerous. I've decided to hold off on my attempt untill later.

Today's Oregonian (Monday, June 8) has the article.

The article notes she was looking over the mountain when she fell.
