Mt Adams North Cleaver - Friday Aug 12

Post by finley » August 9th, 2016, 7:23 am

Anyone interested in a light and fast ascent of Adams via the North Ridge?

~16 miles roundtrip, 7500' gain. Helmet, ice ax, crampons likely at the ice cap. I intend to move quickly - looking for trail runners or endurance folks - someone who will push the whole way and likely jog the descent. Can we do it in...8 hours or less? Depart Portland early Fri, or late Thurs and bivvy at Killen Creek TH - I could be compelled either way.

Tall order!

Just saw this.
Did you do it?
If I had seen it in time, I probably would have warned you that this was the singularly least enjoyable climb I have ever done.
One step forward, slide four steps back in pumice and movable rock.
