      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

Adams- South Route

Recommended Posts

So, a couple newbie friends of mine are planning on climbing Adams via the S. route next weekend (10/23). They've asked me for tips and advise on what to expect, but I'm really not sure what to tell them. Having only done the route in May, I could envision anything from fresh snow, bulletproof rock-embedded ice, or a path beat through scree and talus.

 

Any of you have any better suggestions? Obviously the weather immediately preceding their trip will greatly affect what they find, but any blanket tips? ice axe or poles? crampons or running shoes?

 

Thanks

Probably it's mostly a scree slog now, but if I were going up there next weekend I'd bring crampons and axe just in case.

 

As far as blanket tips go...wool, for sure.

i was just up in trout lake last weekend 10/9/04 and there was fresh snow down to tree line.

bring the ice axe, crampons and boots. the wind is usually whipping pretty good up there this time of year too.
