Mt. Adams Summit
August 7 @ 7:00 am - August 9 @ 5:00 pm| $750
Our goal is to get you to the summit of Mt. Adam’s, the second largest peak in Washington and the third largest in the cascades at 12,276’ (feet). Our carefully designed itinerary allows for a more relaxed pace, and plenty of time to attempt the summit. Although REA follows a general itinerary, we work very closely with you to ensure that you and your group needs are met.
Day 1: Meet at our office in Troutdale, Oregon and organize gear; travel to the trailhead; and begin hiking to our camp at around 9,000′. On this day, we will cover approximately 3 miles and gain 4,000’ of elevation. After setting up camp, we will conduct “snow school” to be sure everyone is comfortable with their mountain axe and crampons.
Day 2: After an early morning breakfast, we’ll head out for the summit. After a solid push, we’ll first arrive at the false summit (Pikers Peak) and then push the last 600’ to the true summit. This is a steep and challenging ascent, but a clear day will reward climbers with views of Mt. Rainier, Mt. Hood, and Mount St. Helens. After climbing back down to the false summit, the remaining descent to the tent is accomplished by a quick, knee-saving glissade. Most of our clients think the glissade experience is the best part of this trip.
Day 3: After a restful night and breakfast, we’ll pack up camp and hike back to the trailhead, and travel back to our office in Troutdale, Oregon.
This trip includes: Permits, transport to and from REA office, group gear (tents, stoves, etc), technical gear (mountain axe, crampons, helmet), and meals.
This trip requires three (3) participants to run. To inquire about our two-day Mt. Adams Summit trip, please email us at email@example.com.
