  1. Mt Adams approach this spring

    Ah nice, I see what you mean about heading north from the Morrison trailhead. (basically avoid unnecessarily wrapping around McDonald Ridge on the road) Also know what you mean about dropping too low, haha. Looks like if I stay west of McDonald Ridge on the way down, the fall line points pretty much straight toward the Morrison trailhead. PS. It's a full moon on April 29! Could be a great moonlit ascent, and late morning ski down! If anyone else wants to join...
  2. Mt Adams approach this spring

    Sweet thank you both for the input. Sounds promising, especially since I have a few days to wait out the weather. I actually don't mind flat road skinning. Sometimes you can get that nice glide going... I do enjoy the early season solo trips for the solitude. Usually scale back the summit ambitions but mthorman, you're right...it's so amazing having a mountain all to yourself!
  3. Mt Adams approach this spring

    Hello all, dumb California climber here. I'll be visiting the northwest for a ski mountaineering course at the end of April and was hoping to climb Mt Adams on the way home. After doing some basic googling it sounds like roads will be closed at some point along the usual south spur approach to this mountain. So just wondering if the approach would be long enough to turn the outing into a multi-day affair, if it's worth going for it at all, etc. Also, if anyone wants to do this trip week of April 30 - May 4 I could use a partner. Although be forewarned I have the opposite of summit fever and often am completely content tooling around on the lower flanks of the big mountains! ha! Thanks!! JT
