technicolorNHSecond time was easier  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2009


This was much easier than my first climb here. The weather was forty one degrees with wind chill in the twenties and cold fog. No fiendish black flies in evidence like last July and no sun pounding on my back. Just roaring wind, near zero visibility, and a hard two and half hours up Airline to the summit. On the way back down I skipped over to the hut where they were shutting down for the winter. Met a younger couple at the ravine edge that were turning back; I wish I had taken you up there because you were well equipped for it. Hope you made it back for another try!

Date Climbed: Mar 20, 2012


Last day of winter, lots of sunshine and record breaking temps. Up Airline, down Valley Way. I definitely didn't need those crampons I lugged around all day!

FlattlanderAmazing peak  Sucess!


King Ravine/Great Gully with Subway variation. So cool! Peaceful, undeveloped summit is the antithesis of Adams' larger neighbor.

Some clouds on the summit but otherwise a beautiful day with only one or two other people, despite the President's Day weekend.

Hiked to the top from Madison Springs Hut en route to Washington. It was cloudy at the top and I couldn't see very far.

Valley Way to Madison Springs Hut. After doing Madison, we tried Adams but were sent back by clouds and thunder. After a couple hours at the hut, we did Adams again and this time made it to the top.

fridayGreat day with Jamie and the Vampire Fruit Flies  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 29, 2010


Great hike up after from the Madison Hut as part of a two mountain hike along with Mt Madison via the Daniel Webster Trail. The trail up from Star Lake was a bit tricky near the top, but nothing too bad. I was expecting a "Mt Adams" sign at the top, but the only sign there read a bit like "keep moving, buddy".
Still, great weather, hardly any wind, met a great hiking buddy from NYC, and a ton of these little vampiric blood sucking black fruit flies that loved to fly into every little orifice on your face, if not sucking blood from other parts. (Sorry Jamie, but you had the worst time with them. I'd walk ahead, stir them up, and you'd then be engulfed in a cloud of them while I happily scampered away).

Last day of the traverse. So cloudy I could hardly see the cairns to find my way! The clouds finally broke on my way down.

Date Climbed: Dec 5, 2009


Climbing Adams was very invigorating!During the final summit approach it was very icy and steep.I began to slide uncontrollably grabbing and digging my feet into the crusty snow with fright.It was a wake up call reminding me that its time for the crampons.From the summit,I was just speachless!Just about 1000ft above the clouds made for the majestic veiw to the Carter range.It was a very intense mountain.Its in my top 10....Jim W

GrampahawkA most perfect day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 23, 2009


Summited via Airline trail and returned on the Great Gulf and Valley Way. We had absolutely perfect weather. It was about 30-35 degrees, not a cloud in the sky, no wind (except at the summit). Days such as this are vary rare in the Whites at this time of year.
