Adams South Side?


Recommended Posts

I'm taking a friend up Adams and he wants to do the South Side (newbie, plus he had a relative climb the South Side years ago and he wants to do the same route). Anyway, I've climbed Adams 3 times but never from the south, so I am wondering how long the approach is from the trailhead to the Lunch Counter?


Any help is greatly appreciated,

Climbed the south climbers route Sunday the 24th with a group of high schoolers most of whom had never climbed any mountain. We left the trail head at 5:45am and were at the lunch counter at 8:30am and on top at 11:45am. Back at trailhead at 2:15pm. Went with running shoes and ski poles and lots of water. Can't really see what the point is of lugging a tent to 9000' unless you just like to carry a heavy pack and sleep outdoors. It is certainly doable in a relatively easy day from the parking lot.
