Current conditions on Mt Adams?

Hey Everybody,

Climbing Adams this Sunday - has anyone been up this week?

Wondering about general conditions and what shape the glissade chutes have been in.

And is the smoke bad up that way?

Thanks!!

I can't breath...

Can someone spell "air quality" ? "S-m-o-k-e".
what's happening where you are. We were up on the Ragged Ridge Traverse last week from the Easy Pass Trail. View went from forever to can't see across the valley. Any reports from Liberty Bell or I guess anywhere? Smoke moved in Tuesday. quite a change overnight.

Helmet or No Helmet On Rainier

Hey all,

We will be climbing Rainier via Disappointment Cleaver next weekend. Absurdly warm weather apparently. I am advocating for helmets but a friend is saying no helmets as "no-one wears them on Rainier". What are the forums thoughts?

Bulgers peaks in winter

Hi PNW climbers,
Unfortunately my climbing season will be cut short this year due to an extended trip and I'll be returning back home in December.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Is Hood Doable in August?

I've searched websites and forums for info on what Hood is like now in July and what it might be like in August.

Mt Baker

Image
Three of us aimed for Mt. Herman from the middle parking lot near the Bagley Lake trail. Got off route to summit, but close and we'll know next time. The road is now plowed all the way to Artist Point, but a lot of snow still up there. I thought some one had posted Mt Herman but I am not finding it? Anyway, numerous skiers and many tracks coming off Table Mountain into the ...
