Great work out, but awfully long for one day. We passed many people who had opted to not wear crampons. I would recommend them. Fantastic glissade off the top.
Nice climb. Beautiful high camp. Not difficult at all.
Good climb, good times. Forgot gloves. The glissade chute was about 7 feet deep off of the false summit.
Overnight Solo -sweet climb.
Went with a couple friends. Progress was so fast we just dumped the camping gear halfway up and tagged the summit. Wish I knew how to ski back then.
Pleasant climb. Found a poor tiny mouse on the summit. He must have hitchhiked up in a pack.
This was an awesome hike. When we hiked there was still lots of snow, and we were constantly taking our cramp-ons off and on again. That really slowed us down. But the view from the top is worth it ten fold.
This is my tallest cascade summit. It got warm, there were tons of people, one of whom dislodged a boulder which shot down the fall line near Pikers Peak. Summit view was awesome, and Im glad the drive to Cold Springs was done in a rental car. It was a creek bed more than a road. As it should be.
On July 3rd my wife and I decided to spend the 4th climbing Adams. We had climbed the peak a few years earlier, but had camped at the Lunch Counter on the first day. This time we did the climb in one day. Great climb!
Awsome climb with a great bunch of people
standard south climb. the glissade line was well developed.
4am start and back at 11. Awesome views of Hood at sunrise.
CLIMED SOUTH SPUR 2 TIMES AND MAZAMA 1 TIME FUN MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB AND THE SLIDE BACK DOWN
.Climbed solo up the West Ridge as a day hike. Nice exposure.
Second summit attempt, the first ending at the false
summit a week prior. The snowpack was incredible. Camped
IN the snow at Timberline; Devils Half Acre was a breeze.
Reached the Lunch Counter at lunchtime. The snow was
stable and easy to walk on. Mt. St. Helen's lava dome
was still steaming from the May 1980 eruption. Awesome!
Got to 8000ft the first night, all in the dark. Summit day was great with wonderful visiblity.
Two day climb up the south spur. Camped east of the lunch counter. More scree and boulders made for slower going than I expected, guess thats what I get for going in Sept. Summited around 0930, strong winds, probably 40-50 mph. Good times.
Great day to climb with excellent weather. Had a miserable wet slog coming off the mountain but well worth it.
Climbed via the very crowded south route it was a nice walk up peak with no real technical challenges. It could be harder with limited visabilty but we had a great clear day to climb.
Woohoo, First official summit logged!
Nice weather, only 10 mph winds at the top, and excellent glissade. Snow was hard on the way up, and crampons were helpful.
