Mt Adams

Personal by on July 15, 2007 at 9:29 pm

Van and I climbed Mt Adams on Saturday. As the second highest peak in the Northwest, the climb involved 6,700 ft of vertical ascent.

The best part was the glissade down (glissade is a French term for slide on your ass). One uninterrupted slide took us down 2700’. 10 mins down, but an hour and a half up.

Photos and travelog are on our website.

    sounds like a great trip, dave.

    see why it would be fun to bring skis for the long trip down the snow field?

    I do, although I definitely wonder about pain/gain of lugging up skis and boots.
