Mount Adams Climbing Notes

Steve Hovanes from UNITED STATES writes:

A nice route variation on the south climb route and a way to escape the hordes is to go climber&#39;s left when the trail starts to climb. Continue around to the ice fields on the southwest side, then up and intersect the lunch counter and rejoin the south route. I was up in August and snow was hard until the sun hit it, so crampons are mandatory. Be aware that Adams is a large pile of loose rock and avoid possible rock fall from the rotten rock islands in the snowfields. <br/> <br/>When descending is is very easy to be drawn climbers left from the lunch counter; the snowfield cliffs out if you head that way, so stay hard right.
