Mt Adams August 10-12, 2012

Postby Hemoglobin » Tue Aug 21, 2012 6:58 am

Epic conditions on Adams except the view was hazed. If you haven't been up Adams yet, it's time to add it to your bucket list. The glissade alone is worth it!

Note: Snow is melting fast and the final section going up to the main summit is close to being all dirt. Best time to go is July to mid-August (of course this can change year to year).

Check out the 4' deep glissade chute near the top of the false summit! This mountain is so much fun this is our second trip up in just over a month.

Hi, that’s a great glissading and video of it. I see you shot it with GoPro 2, a very nice exposure. I had GoPro but it was very unreliable on snow, usually overexposed, so I returned it.

I don’t really see the remains of the wooden constriction on the summit. Was it still under the snow or they removed it?

Which mountain is in the background on this pic, Hellens?

I've never had a problem with overexposure on bright snow, the camera seems to do its best in high light.

You can see the top of the mining cabin sticking out in pic # 13, yes it is still under snow :)
