Default Beaverton to PSU?

My in City apartment search is going no where. Lots of places for more than my financial aid will allow. Beaverton seems cheaper, but I plan on bike commuting, that is, if I plan on eating.

The question is however, how bad is that hill? I could use my mtb if I need to, but I picked a nice, early 80s road bike out of the garbage for the commute. It works well, except for the 40lbs and lack of gearing (compared to the modern mtb set up at least).

Could I beat the supposed 70 min max ride on the bike? That would mean doing better than about 10mph, easy here (suburban NJ) but that ridge is scaring me...

Thanks!
