Mount Hood, located about 50 miles east of Portland, Oregon, is one of the most climbed glaciated peaks in North America (#2 in the world behind Japan’s Fuji-san according to some). While it last erupted in 1907 and still has active fumaroles, it is now considered a dormant volcano. While Mount Hood has reportedly been summited by a woman in high heels, this does not discount the need for climbing experience on this mountain. An ice axe and crampons are mandatory for most climbers, with climbing helmets being a popular addition, especially higher up
