I am seeking 1 to 2 people to summit Mt. Adams on a weekend with me. I am a 53 y/o female who has had a little practice traveling w/ice axe/crampons & would feel more comfortable to have a companion or 2 to accompany me. I consider myself a "moderate hiker"...6 to 13 mi days are typical. I've summited Mt. McCloughlin, Thielsen, S. Sister, & Shasta solo. Mt.Hood I've summited w/a team.
We would leave Friday evening & arrive late at Mt. Adams spending the night at the South Climb Trailhead #183. The following morning we would take the entire day ascending/descending the mountain (weather permitting). The trail begins at 5,600 ft & summit is 12,276 ft.
I do have Mondays off from work so a 3-day journey would be an option allowing us to spend Sat. night at what is called "The Lunch Counter" at 7,800 ft (just above the Crescent Glacier).
