Trip: Mount Adams - Adams Glacier

Trip Date: 06/11/2019

Trip Report:

 

Went for a night out to the Adams Glacier for a go at things. Just wanted to share a few notes. The road between Divide Camp TH and Killen Creek TH is nearly melted out and has one rutted snow patch passable with a decent clearance ride.  There's still decent snow cover for most of the second half of the approach to High Camp. From the base of of the Adams Glacier we noticed a disconnected block above the left traverse exit out the top of the route. As the sun rose we saw light shinning through the sides and underneath the block. So we opted for climbing ice in some crevasses instead. There was a decent amount of ice fall and rockfall activity while we hung out on the glacier yesterday until about 1300hrs.  If anyone heads out here over the next year for the Adams glacier any notes on the block above the left exit traverse would be appreciated. 

Gear Notes:
Pickets, ice tools and screws, rope, harness, no snow flotation devices, suncreen, hot tub.

Approach Notes:
Walk trail to snow and then find your way.
