This gorgeous volcano, at the north end of White Salmon Valley, is Washington's second highest peak.
It was known to the Native Americans as Klickitat.

Adams Glacier WI2-3  WA : Southwest Cascades : Mount Adams
The Adams Glacier is on Mt. Adams' N / NW face. This tumbling ice fall provides quick access to 'The Pinnacle' (a sub-summit), the plateau and ultimately the true summit. Descend via the N. Ridge or a snow field on the west side of the N. Ridge. Note the N. Ridge consist of very loose volcanic rock. Be careful to not release rock slides on fellow skiers or climbers....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
