Trip: Mount Adams - North Ridge


Date: 7/23/2011


Trip Report:

The road to Killen Creek trailhead opened last week. I went up to do the North Ridge. The Killen Creek Trail was snow covered from 5000' elevation. Compass required. Here are a few photos.

A little more beta. The route took me 8.5 hrs to the summit. Two hrs. from the trailhead to where I camped, and 6.5 hrs. from my camp to the summit. I'm not real fast, but steady. It is non-technical and there was about 2,000 vertical feet of loose scree in the middle of the ridge. The last 2000' was snow covered.
