The south ridge of 12,276 Mt. Adams is the easiest route to the summit of a major volcanoe in the Cascades. With no glacier travel it can be climbed without an ice axe or crampons in good conditions. As such it's a crowded place on spring and summer weekends, but well worth the long drive, and crowds, when the snow is prime. These pictures are of Scott Rose boarding the chutes in late June 2004.
