Great pictures, awesome stuff. Seeing this made me round up the gear and set the alarm.

Looks like a killer trip guys. I'm new to this website and am looking to knock off Adams this summer.

Although your trip was a month ago, I'm curious about the hike from the car to where you camp. Were you able to skin the entire way or was it a mix? And you said it was about five miles?

Again, great work! I'm jealous...

dzook: We started about 1.5 miles above the Wicky Shelter, and had about 2.5 miles of dry hiking and crossing some snowpatches. After that, it was skinning or cramponing up to the summit. From where we had to park, it was 5 miles of closed road to the proper TH. Now it's about 2.5 I think, but wait for TopherVW's update on that one, or check the USFS website for the area. I'm not too sure about total mileage if that's what you're asking.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Thanks for the info guys, that's super helpful. Yeah, Kjkrow, that's what i was looking for, just what it was like over the terrain where the roads closed, I've never been up there, so just info-gathering for now.

Tophervw, that'd be awesome to get an update on the conditions there, I imagine the snow is melting off pretty fast. The Park ranger lady told me the road wouldn't be fully open until around mid-JULY, so that's kinda crazy. I live in portland (how about you?) and its hot as hell at the moment.

Looking forward to the upcoming TR-hopefully some pics?- tear it up!

We will be coming from Seattle if you are interested in hooking up on the hill...
