Mount Adams South Climb
July 13 to July 14, 2019
Coordinator: Kyle Burns
Summit Altitude: 12280 feet
Elevation Gain: 6900 feet
Round-trip Distance: 15 miles
Excursion Time: 30 hours (car-to-car)
Carpool ratio: 3.0 (people/cars)
This trip will be reserved for new/inexperienced climbers. If you just completed climb school, this is a good non technical climb and a good prep for a future Hood climb. Alpine start, crampon and ice axe use, glissading and backcountry conditions.
This is a 2 day trip with an overnight at 9500 ft. The first day, we leave the Cold Spring campground/trailhead (5600 ft) in the morning after picking up permits at the ranger station. We arrive at Lunch Counter (9,500 ft) after the 5 mile hike where we setup camp. Sunday morning we will do an alpine start where we will start heading towards the summit at sunrise. Once at the summit (3 miles), we will return to camp where we will have lunch and pack down our tents. We will head back to the Cold Spring Sunday afternoon.
You should be able to hike comfortably with a ~30+ lbs backpack containing backpacking gear (tent, sleeping pad, sleeping bags, food, ice axe and crampons). You should know how to self arrest.Signed Up: 9
