mt_daydreamRoute Climbed: Adams glacier Date Climbed: July 3, 2005  Sucess!


Climbed the Adams glacier with Kurt. Saw a huge serac break off and thunder down an avalanche on Friday (July 1) from high camp. Rested all Saturday - luckily, things seemed to be stable all day on Saturday. Hence went for it on Sunday. Great route - sustained at 45 degrees with some 50 degree portions. Had quite a few crevasses, but it was pretty straightforward to dodge most of them. The route might be out within a few days though.

Quite an endurance challenge: climbed in one very long day from the campground at 5600ft. Without crampons! Mistake! Dicey! Never try it without crampons! Summit and indeed most of the climb completely socked in, but cleared into beautiful sunset red strange cloud formations as I pushed the remaining hour to the car.

Started out with a nasty day but it was the only day we could do it and thus we voted to suffer vs. turn around. This was my first time on Adams and was bummed we didn't summit. A combination of weather, getting started too late, and one of the party members needing to be back to town by a certian time caused the lack of summittness. Although, we made it to 11K feet in 5 hours and would have probably summited in alittle over 6. Oh well, next time.

A casual but memorable trip with my wife. The Lunch Counter is one of the coolest camp sites around.

I'd forgotten how quickly the approach can go if one has an 80's pop-song stuck in their head. we summitted around 6PM, after setting up camp at the Lunch Counters. A group of High School mountaineers summited in the new "Mountaineer Jordans" and "Levi soft-shell".

Windy start, camped at the lunch counter and was almost blown off the mountain that night. Dawned a clear, bright and still morning, making for a great summit.

Climbed with my climbing partner, Andre. Long approach as late April snows blocked road to trail head. Beautiful summit day with St. Helens, Hood and Rainier prominent. Longggg slog out.

My first climb up a big mountain. Climbed solo. I have been back to climb this route 3 more times in 2002, 2003 and 2004.

Two day climb with friends from Ohio that took longer than we expected. Great views of Rainier, St. Helens, and Hood. The glissade was like riding down a bobsled chute.

Day 1 Climbed to just below the false summit attempt and camped. Interesting enough found a clean stream of water. Lucky we had a filter with us. And yeah for not having to melt snow.

Day 2 Climbed to the summit and had a great time glisading.

nice volcano, the fresh snow on the route allowed some long glissades on the hiking shoes...
