Ascent Trip Report

First part of climb to Mt Adams. First mile or so is easy to moderate up hill. Markers are sketchy at best but trail is easy to follow. Gets rocky near first switchback, then steep climb to cabin and continues to summit. Not much relief as far as level areas. Nice views of Caps Ridge once you break tree line. This is hardest part of climb. Close to 4K in 4 miles.
