Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2011


Took my friend up the south spur for his first summit. Camped at Lunch Counter. It was beautiful but then there was a cloud on top. We went up anyway and it was still fun. Here's a six minute video with some fun music and scenery: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afXb9SSwNi8&feature=related

Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2011


Great one day hike. Left the parking lot at 2:50 am, got to summit around 8:30 and hung out because it was so nice up there. Back to the car about 1:20 pm.

Had a wonderful time climbing Adams. Due to high winds we only made it the false summit at 11,700 ft. Sooo close! Which just makes me that much more excited for the next trip up!!

relicGreat place  Sucess!


The entire area around Adams is a great wilderness, enjoyable to visit and explore. Have summitted a couple of times, and recently skied the circumference, staying between about 7000 to 9000 feet. Perfect, relatively easy terrain, does not require high-end technical skiing skills. The big negative: The Yakima tribe allows snowmobiling on their side, and those smelly noise monsters are impressive climbers, they go everywhere! They even trespass out of the reservation into the wilderness area, especially on the north side.

EverydayExplorerGreat Glissading  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 11, 2011


One of the longest glissades I have ever had the opportunity to enjoy. Great day and a solid climb.

BombchaserLots of snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2011


Backpacked into Lunch Counter at about 9200 feet. Built camp and then headed up to the summit at around 1pm. Came back down and spent the night before heading back down to my car the the following morning. I put crampons on at about 8000 or so feet and was in them all the way to the summit. Was able to glissade the 2000 feet from Pikes Peak to Lunch Counter. Snow line starts at about 7400 feet or so. Spent almost 11 hours total time on the ascent and descent. Not counting time at base camp.

bellinghamclimberGorgeous Northern Approach  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2011


A great approach on the Killen Creek Trail up to ~7400 feet, where we made camp in one of several nice shelters that previous climbers had built. We took off at midnight and had the summit to ourselves before the hordes came up the south side. Beautiful climb up the north ridge.

Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2011


My buddy SouthernYokel and I camped at 9,500' on the snow just above lunch counter. Great level spot away from the crowds... Left camp early on the 27th and summited around 7am. First group of the day. Enjoyed the views for about an hour with NO wind before the Hordes of people made the march from Pikers. When we saw a line of 20 heading our way, it was a sign to make our early descent on an icy glissade back to camp.

Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2011


Great climb. My 3 person team was the 2nd group to summit at 6am. The climb down was filled with people in jeans and sweatpants and just general mountain foolishness. I will never do the South Spur on a weekend again. Too many yahoos.

ryedawgLost Black Diamond Axe
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2011


I found an leashless black diamond ice axe on the trail.
Contact me to get it back, I live in PDX.

There is much snow on the mountain at this point.
Bring all you gear and something to slide on if you want.
You can slide far past lunch counter on your way home,
keep walking down the snow and you'll hit a couple more chutes.

TyC20th - 21st - Great Weather  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2011


Stayed the night up on lunch counter and there were a lot of people, but still plenty of camp sites. A small stream was running through part of LC and most were using it to refill their water. Hit the summit at 9:25 am on the 21st. Snow was very hard until around 11am when I left the summit.

Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2011


My climbing buddy and I finally both had a free weekend, and the weather was cooperating. Climbed up and camped just below Lunch Counter on Saturday, went to the summit on Sunday. Marine front had us a little worried, but all of the clouds cleared around 11am. Perfect summit!

fredzurensickFun Day with Friends  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2011
Went up a few weeks ago to Lunch Counter with a big group of friends. We found a great spot to camp about halfway through the Lunch Counter. The next morning, we got an alpine start and summited in a lenticular cloud on an otherwise clear day. Oh well... A good time was had by all, especially on the descent ;)

Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2011
My daughter and I left Lunch Counter at 5:30am. At 8:05am we locked arms and marched together the last 80 steps to the summit of Mt. Adams. After hugs, congratulations, photos, and fresh perculated coffee (her idea), we glissaded back down. The view (and coffee), was worth it!:)

LeviLate summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2011


My buddy was ready for another mountain and he picked Adams. Climbed up to the Lunch Counter and set up camp. At 5pm, we decided rather than waiting for the next day to climb, we would go for the top tonight. We reached the summit at 8pm and back to the tent at 9pm. Coming down from the summit during the sunset was very enjoyable. Slept in the next day and walked out. 2 days of perfection on the mountain.

Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2011


Left Cold Springs TH at 4:30 am; 2 hrs to Lunch Counter, summitted after 4 hrs. Could see Baker, Glacier, Stuart, Rainier, St. Helens, Hood, and Jefferson. Awesome! Skied from the summit and then down the Southwest Chute on mediocre snow, but not bad for the end of July. 5000' continuous descent.

BLongMazama Glacier  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2011


Ascended via Mazama Glacier (Bird Creek Meadows TH is still not open so we traversed from the South Slopes parking lot). Got a bit lost glissading down the peak in a white out, but it made for a fun, long day.
