seabadgeMt Adams / South Spur 1 day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2013

4:30AM start from the TH#183 / South Spur. Summited at 10:30 with perfect blue skies and little wind. Back to the TH by 2:30. Crampons and ice axe are necessary, specifically before the sun hits the slopes. Fantastic day!

samhalaiAwesome mountain. Painful glissade in the evening  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2013
We decided to summit Mt Adams in one day. Conservative estimate was 14hrs round trip to do the 6,800 ft up and down but we ended up taking 17hrs to get back to the trailhead. Really started to drag above 10,000 ft but I successfully managed to keep my Acute Mountain Sickness at bay with the right breathing techniques and rest. Good thing we had excellent weather on our side so we renegotiated our turn around time and pushed through to the summit. However, due to the delay the glissade chutes had re-frozen with hard rough ice. While sliding down the 30° slopes at 9 mph the skin on my lower back got exposed to all the friction and I got some minor burns. But descending 3000 ft in 60 mins by sliding down a mountain is a fun experience and was the delayed gratification that kept us going up in the first place! The only thing we could’ve done better is plan for more sleep before getting started :)

Door to door from PDX in a little under 14 hours made for a very nice day with great views of the other Cascade volcanoes. Fairly slushy conditions on the slope to Piker's Peak and beyond made it slow going. The glissade was very fun!

Climbed via the South Spur, spent a windy night at Lunch Counter. Should have climbed a month earlier, as so much snow had melted that it was a pain trying to walk up loose gravel most of the way.

Two successful climbs, both on the South Spur route a week apart in July 1984. Fun, fun, fun--although bad weather was coming in, luckily we set out some wands marking the route. Turned out to be vital for the descent on the second trip

Climbed it two days ago. Enjoyed this one. Pikers peak without crampons proved to be a enjoyable challenge as I constantly used my ice axe to make steps. Great Glissading! We went down the wrong ridge descending but we were able to correct our path rather quickly.
