Vertigo soulAdams Glacier  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2012

Vertigo soul

Navigated the somewhat confusing Adams Glacier with 2 great partners - G-Love and Lutty. Great route, but right side was totally out and instead we zig-zagged our way up the middle of the glacier. Had the peak to ourselves and weather was again perfect!

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2012
One-day ascent on the South Spur. Started from Cold Springs about 1:30. Lunch Counter to Piker's was icy early in the morning. We waited on top for an hour or two for the sun to come out and make conditions passable for the excellent glissade.

apesouth spur, my first Cascades summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2012
Perfect conditions on the South Spur. A friend and I camped around 6500'. Lots of post holing, especially past Piker's Peak. Stunning views of Hood and Rainier from the summit. Glissaded most of Piker's.

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


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

CalEvery Year  Sucess!


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.

Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2011


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.
