Join Crew Treks on this exciting outing to climb Mt Adams
At 12,276 ft Mt. Adams is the second highest peak in Washington State, and is the third highest of all the Cascade volcanoes. During summer months Mt. Adams provides a nice alternate to busier climbs on Mt. Rainier and Mt. Hood and can be climbed as either a long one-day climb, or a nice overnight trip. In the spring and early summer, Mt. Adams is also a coveted Northwest ski descent. Crew Treks offers two guided climbs on Mt. Adams, ranging from relatively straight forward climb of the South Spur route to more challenging route of North Ridge. Mount Adams is also a good location for a basic mountaineering seminar.
Crew Treks offers two climbs on Mt Adams:
-Summit climb via South Route
-Mt Adams Traverse via North Ridge
Mt Adams South Route Climb offers easy snow slopes and occasional rocky scree sections. It is a perfect beginner climb at altitude where one can practice the use of ice axe, crampons and rope handling skills.
Price: $550 South Route Climb (Max Ratio - 5:1 Climber:Guide)
Price: $750 Norh Ridge Climb (Max Ratio-3:1 Climber:Guide)
