Mount Adams

Beginner Summit Climb

With numer­ous glac­i­ers, tum­bling water­falls, and open alpine forests and mead­ows sprin­kled among lava flows and rim rocks, majes­tic Mount Adams is not only the sec­ond-high­est peak in Wash­ing­ton at 12,276 feet / 3742 meters, but also one of the most beau­ti­ful climbs around. As a com­pos­ite vol­cano Adams resem­bles Mount Rainier and offers sim­i­lar climb­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties, but with more soli­tude. From our route on the Maza­ma Glac­i­er we have a close-up view of the jum­bled Klick­i­tat Glac­i­er Ice­fall and unob­struct­ed views of Mount St Helens, Mount Rainier, and Mount Hood.
