WoundedKneeBad weather on the south spur
Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2007

WoundedKnee

The road is clear up to the trailhead, but the trail gets snowy a mile from the trailhead. Weather report was dodgy, but we took a shot anyway. At about 7000', whiteout conditions took over, and our tracks began to fill with snow. We headed down, not having a night to wait out the storm. This is a grudge peak now.

We came so very close to the summit but just didn't get it. The road isn't clear to Cold Springs yet but its getting close, so we had to walk the extra few miles. Made camp at about 7000'. We watched a couple thunder storms boil up. Left camp next day at 5am. Finally at 11:30am we got to the false summit. The weather the whole day was nice and right when we got to the false summit the clouds came in. Seeing that it was starting to get to white out conditions we turned around. About 10min later after getting pretty far down the weather became perfect again. Being to tired to walk up we continued down. Missed the tent and had to look for it and then packed up and headed for Morrison Creek. 4:45pm we reached the car after the grueling hike out. We came so close but we will have to return one day to get this one.

South Spur again. Snow storm blew in and made visability horrible. We bailed out after weathering a restless night on the Lunch Counter. Fun time though. I found the experience to be a great reminder of how sudden a storm can change the dynamics of a climb, any time of year.

Long but fun climb. An early start put us on the summit before clouds rolled in. Felt bad for people still hiking up into the soup. Unfortunately the glissade track was too icy for a comfortable descent.

long approach since we couldn't drive to the trailhead. did the adams gl. route. greeted by falling seracs at the start right next to us, we decided to climb fast and never stopped to drink or eat (very dumb not to drink)but had it all to ourselves.

Up the South Spur in one push from the car. We left Seattle at 9PM, got to the TH by 2 and was at the top by noon I think? I cant remember, it was a while back. It was fun, the glissade is KILLER!

mar CSouth spur route in a day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2006
I had a perfect solo one-day-hike/climb to the summit of Mount Adams. Started at 7a.m. from Coldsprings Campground and reached the summit at 1:30p.m.. The weather was very good all the time, but on the summit it became a little bit cloudy and the view was not too exciting. I had crampons and I was happy to have them; saw a lot of people climbing with inadequate shoes and clothes :-(

Nevertheless, a great tour on a great day.
Came back to the campground at 4p.m.

Date Climbed: Sep 16, 2006

TheBootfitter

Went with a group of four. Two were first-time climbers. We experienced quickly changing conditions, including snow, sleet, thick heavy white-out conditions, and beautiful blue skies. The trip was mostly about getting some experience for the newbies, and we accomplished that. Summit would have been nice, but we didn't play our cards right and missed our window. Turned around at 11K at noon in white-out conditions. Ended up assisting a disoriented climber find way back to camp. Fun trip!

One OSAT team went up the South Spur, while another team of 12 did the Mazama. We met on the top. It is my only Adams summit, so I'm probably one of a small percent of climbers who have summmited Adams but never gone up the SS. Fabulous, world class glassade down the upper part of the SSpur before traversing back to the glacier to retrieve our camping gear.
