This was my first attempt climbing a mountain and we decided to do it in one day. I didnĀ“t bring enough food or clothing for that matter and we did start towards the summit until around noon. Massive cloud system and electrical storm ended up turning us back less than 200 feet below the summit in the middle of the night. Definitely learned a lesson and will never do anything this stupid again.

After picking up my permit that morning I didn't start hiking until 9:30, reached the summit at 3 pm, and back at parking at 6. Was a fun glissade in spots! South Spur route.

Camped at Cold Springs Campground and started up Trail #183. Nearly got nailed by a huge rock that came tumbling down the steep slope but got out of the way in time. Made it up to the summit and back to the campground in one long day. Strenuous going up but definitely worth the view from the top. Glissade down was quite fast and fun!

3 day trip, 2 nights at High Camp. Mostly steep snow. Crevasse navigation had me climbing about 25' of water ice on the far right at about 10.5k'. Had gear but didn't use it there. Descended N Cleaver, found a rap station to get to a decent snow field around 10k'. Mosquitos were bloody awful below 7k'.

Wow this one is worth doing over and over and over again. Started early and did it in one push. Great glissade down.

Great weather both days we were on the mountain. We camped around 8900 ft with relative privacy. Tons of places to choose from, where people have worked hard to create rock shelters (much appreciated).Long snow slog up with varying snow conditions in the morning hours. Only wished we would have brought crampons instead of microspikes during that part. Other than that, a simple snow hike up. Great views from the top, and the best glissading ever - over 2500ft of it on the way down!

Solo 14 hour round trip from 830PM to 1030AM with a 2.5 hour rest/nap in between. Fun ride down and avoided the hottest part of the day!

Overnighted at the Lunch Counter which was very warm. Mild overnight temps and a light freeze made for punchy snow until just under Pikers where it was bullet proof. Enjoyable walk to the summit. First Cascade climb!

Hi Jurgen, I haven't skied Adams yet. I agree, it's too late in the season for it to be worth it at this point. I will probably aim for a late winter/spring attempt next year and just plan on a very long approach.

Hiked in in the afternoon of July 8 and spent the night at around 8,000 ft near Crescent Glacier. 0700 start next day and summited with girlfriend at around 1PM. Snow pretty punchy most of the way, but epic glissade runs the whole way down.

Hi Chris

Sorry for my late response. Didn't notice your comment. Have you been able to climb the Mazama glacier and ski down? We met a couple from Canada that planned a ski descent for the day after we climbed Adams. I'm not sure whether this was the right time though. I would go a bit early in spring season.
