MichaelWW'Winter Route' in August!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2011

MichaelWW

Success on our second attempt! Climbed with James Robinson and this was a five star trip all around.

Because of the heavy snowfall in the cascades in 2010/2011 (200%+ of normal), everyone we talked to on the south side was using the 'winter route', which runs to the east of the Crescent Glacier instead of just to the west.

I put my clinometer on multiple spots going up to Pikers peak and it consistently read in the low 40s for incline angle, not 30 degrees as stated.

The summit was amazing, but the glissade down from Pikers was easily the most fun part! So fast too!

Fun climb, awesome glisading! The south walk up route is perfect for getting in shape for bigger climbs

Great climb. Crampons were mandatory this late in the season. Awesome glissade down from Pikers Peak!

I climb this every year for the glissade off the false summit, absolutely fantastic when it's not too sun-cupped. I hear the glaciers are melting faster on Adams than the rest of the Cascades; too bad, this one's a jewel.

Probably the 2 most beautiful days I have spent on a mountain. Not a very commonly used route, but it was fun, isolated, with incredible views. Bivied at 8000 ft on the lava glacier moraine and was rewarded with a great sunset and sunrise.

DrGonzoFirst Solo climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2011

I climbed Adams for my first solo climb. I got my camp set up at the lunch counter, and headed for the summit at about 2 the following morning. I did not encounter any major problems, got to the summit and kicked it for a bit, taking in the view. Stayed at the lunch counter for two more nights... I had a family of Mt. Goats that frequented my camp area. Headed back down. Pretty straightforward but rewarding trip! I'd like to try a different route than the standard south route...

armstrongclimberFirst Glaciated Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2011
First glaciated peak!!! Did this one in 2 days with friends from my scout troop. Hiked in all of our stuff up to lunch counter where we spent the night. Then woke up to lightning storms at 4 am so we didn't get climbing until around 9. Lightning struck 100 yards from my tent. We then dashed up to the summit, took some pictures and then had a long hike down. Because of our late start, we didn't get down until around 6 or 7.

Horrible, horrible approach road for a Honda hatchback. Otherwise this route is a walk.

Long trek with two nights on the mountain with Todd James. Camped at the lunchbox. More taxing than I thought it'd be.

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

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!!

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.

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

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.
