Mount Adams Summit Log (#6594)

Climbed by the South Spur route. Lots of snow on the ground well into June, so the trip began 3 miles from the South Climb trailhead. Veered off the classic route onto Suskdorf ridge and camped just below the Lunch Counter at about 8700'. Left camp at 0730 on the 16th and summited at 10:45AM. Descended in 5 hours taking it easy.
For beginners, this is a great trip, but bring the right gear and respect the mountain. This is not a Jeans-and-cheap-hiking-boots climb. Just my 2 cents.
