2nd Stop on the Presi Traverse  Sucess!

First time on Adams was while doing the Presidential Traverse. It was a beautiful clear day with a great group of friends.

King Ravine  Sucess!

Up King Ravine, which proved to be a really fun trail. We took sometime to play around in the Subway.

First day of July and we still had sleet at the top.

Presidential Traverse  Sucess!

Sixth, and unfortunately final, peak on a South to North Presidential Traverse, didn't have time to get Madison. Summited around 2:30, tried to make it down Airline and back to the hiker shuttle by 4:20. Needless to say, we didn't make it. Long day.

Traverse from Jefferson  Sucess!

Did the long (2.5mi) traverse over from Jefferson in rainy, foggy weather and a visibility of 20 feet or so. We basically followed the route from cairn to cairn until we reached the summit of Adams, which we had all to ourselves. It was a LONG, hard traverse over talus back to Jefferson and down the Caps Ridge!

Very windy day.

No Wind!  Sucess!

Went up Adams via the Airline Route. Outside of the rime ice on last leg, this was a perfect day and a perfect trip. After Adams I did Madison as well.

Amazing day  Sucess!

Great hike. A bit windy but not too cold. The clouds rolled in at dusk and mixed with the sunset, giving us a red orange light show.

Up the Airline  Sucess!

Went up the Airline trail. I liked it a lot. A bit windy at the top, but nothing too crazy. Great views.

Pres Traverse  Sucess!

I've climbed Adams a couple times doing the pres traverse (twice in summer, once in winter), never climbed it by itself. Would love to spend more time on this one.

Via Gulfside to Airline  Sucess!

After losing Flanders on Jefferson, I hiked up this one to do a loop looking for him. No visibility and high winds with rain. It stunk. Found my way down the backside and went to Madison Hut and then started backtracking on Gulfside where we finally found each other. Eighth peak on a south to north Presidential Traverse.
