      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Mt Adams - SW Chutes speedski 4:23 6/6/2016

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Adams - SW Chutes speedski


Date: 6/6/2016


Trip Report:

The weather is so good right now! Slid out of Portland last night and made it up to the Cold Springs TH around 10:30 pm. A 7:20 am start and easy skinning/booting had me on top in 2:57.


Quick video edit





The entrance to the SW chutes was ripe and the bottom was over-ripe by 10:30 am. The low traverse out required some shennanigans/scrambling/booting/skinning, but the travel was still quick and I made it back to the car in 4:23.


TR: Mt Adams Speed Ski




I met a bunch of nice folks up there. Hope y'all had a good ski as well!


Gear Notes:

Light is right. Atomic Ultimate 65 with Plum race bindings. 1L H2O and 2 tubes of shot blocks.


Approach Notes:

Standard. Dirt trail becomes continuous snow after about 15 min walk.

there's dirt walking only for about a half a mile of trail. There's some sun-cupping and melt lines in the lower elevation band around treeline, but not much above the crescent glacier.
