Mt Adams Summit Hike (South climb)

Mt Adams Summit Climb Pikers Peak False Summit Hike Trek Washington Mt St Helens
I would have still been the last man on the trail had it not been for the inclement weather advisory (thunderstorm with lightning) that forced climbers off the mountain. But at an elevation gain of 6700 ft in 6.2 miles, Mt Adam summit hike stands my most gruesome hike to date, especially since the roughly 6000+ ft gain Piker’s peak aka false summit was covered in one go. Average time to the real summit stands at 480-720 minutes.

Just one suggestion, trek light and watch every extra pound you pack. At 30 odd lbs (how and why is a tragedy), I slowed myself down considerably.
