Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2010
South Climb trailhead is snowed in still. There was a large snow drift blocking the road 2.16 miles (at 4600 ft) before the trailhead. If you can get past that drift (someone tried in their Dodge truck and got stuck as we started) then the road is clear of snow for probably another mile or more. On our way back down from Cold Springs to where all the cars were parked a guy was driving through the drifts with his jacked up Subbie... maybe his tracks made them passable now? LOTS of downed trees on the road within a mile of Cold Springs.

The trail is all snow still. We had zero scree the whole time (nice). However, we were heading back down in the afternoon and were post holing like crazy. Makes for slow going. Recommend skiing/boarding down.

mikevoieRe: Conditions
What time of day did you decend? We are climbing on the 5th and the 6th. (next week) Do you think we could avoid postholing with an earlier start? Thanks in advance.

osubuck2003How is it?
Anyone climb via the South Spur in the last week or so? Curious how the road into the trailhead and mountain conditions are.

Tough, tough approach. You can only get about 3 miles up the 8040 road right now. Then we snowshoed from there up to about 7,300'. That was a long slog in deep snow. Woke up the next day and went for the summit. The snow is packed and icy about 7000',

Drove down from Seattle with Sally. Hiked in a couple miles in the dark and camped, climbed up the next day. Did a ski ascent in July 2009 and skiied down the west side gully of Pikers Peak - great.

My only summit of Adams was with the Obsidians group out of Eugene, via the south spur. Nice climb, nice day, wasn't in very good shape back then.

Who ever said this was an easy climb is crazy. Not sure where the "Trail to the top" is. I started out at 9:30am Thursday and made camp at 11,400 feet. I climbed the last 800 feet on Friday and then descended back to my car. Total climbing time was about 12.50 hours. Past Lunch Counter it is about 3000 feet of steep loose scree and rock. Had a few rocks zip past me in the snow melt areas. The views on top are awesome. The glaciers are right in your face.

Drove from MT to trailhead for South Spur route. Hiking by 4 am, stopped to pump water, summit around 11:30, back to the car at 3, on Bainbridge aound 8. Long day without snow, but straightforward. Seems like a good mountain to ski.

Caught a beautiful weekend in Oct. My buddy and I had no difficulties but almost descended a steep, steep non returnable gully. A climber a week before us had done the same and it almost cost him is life
