      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!

Mount Adams access for December

Recommended Posts

I'm curious if anyone knows whether car access is restricted for the south ridge route, due to weather or seasonly closures.

The weather forecast isn't looking too good either. Lemme know.Thanks.

Was on Adams South Spur approach 10/25,considerable snow (foot+) already at summer trailhead-these warm rains may have melted things back a bit, I don't think they gate the road but doubt you can get above 3,500 feet in winter season.

Drive car till stuck, walk(ski) further to climb in winter.

I got an reply from the winter sport manager for the Mt. Adams Ranger District after asking the same thing and he said this: "Cold Springs Campground, where the South Climb starts is currently under 3meters of snow. No wheeled vehicular access is possible within 13 miles ofthe South Climb. Cold Springs Campground is accessible via snowmobile.The road access, when covered with snow is a steep, narrow side hill andshould only be attempted only by highly skilled snowmobile operators. TheSouth Climb is usually accessible via wheeled vehicle in late June."

So there you have it. grin.gif" border="0
