If your buddy is planning to climb I Katahdin it will be difficult after October 15. The park is closed to camping after the 15th which basically means he will have to hike from the Golden Road into the park, climb to the summit, them descend and hike back out of the park, all in one day. There is also a good chance the mountain will be closed to hikers due to winter conditions.
