      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!

St. Helens & Adams Travel Recommendations

Recommended Posts

We managed to get a couple permits for St. Helens for the beginning of July. Thought it might be fun to Adams while we are down that direction.

 

We are coming from the Seattle area, so my question is: If you were to climb St.Helens and Adams, which driving route would you take to get there and which would you climb first?

 

I've been to Cold Spring CG, and we took the route from the north side through Randle. What I don't know about is the route between the climbs, Forest Road 90. Seems to be a well-traveled road.

 

I'm thinking maybe do Adams first, coming down through Randle, then heading over to Helens via FS90, and then back up I5?

 

Any advice would be appreciated! Regardless of what route we choose, it is going to be a lot of driving!

Climbed to the summit of Adams Wednesday and had to park my /VW Jetta 3.25 miles below Cold Springs campground. If you have a high clearance 4WD rig you might make it 1/2 mile farther. Otherwise it'll be a couple of more weeks of warmer weather to get to the campground.

Thanks for the info. This won't be until the beginning of July so I'm sure we'll have a little more road to work with.
