Climbing Mt Adams  
2:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Mt Adams
Mt. Adams South Approach, near Trout Lake, WA Highlights: A non-technical but tough climb of almost 7,000 feet, but what a view! Near: Trout Lake, WA Scenery: Distance: 11.6 miles round trip Elevation Gain: 6000 ft Hike Time: 10 hours Difficulty: Strenuous Trail Condition: Bush wacking HikeType: Out and Back Summary: This is a serious climb- close to 7000 ft over 5.8 miles. There is a trail from Cold Springs campground up to the first glacier, and from there you have to know your way. There's snow year round. We start up the mountain on Friday and are going to camp overnight at elevation (9000 feet) and summit the following day. It gets cold at the top - 12,285'. You should know the symptoms of altitude sickness. You have to be ready to slide (glissade) down. All that said, when you summit you will be at one of the highest points in the Northwest, and there aren't too many experiences you'll go through in life that are more rewarding.
