Rising to 3.742 meters above sea level, Mount Adams is the second highest mountain in Washington State and an incredible mountaineering experience!
Home to glaciers, waterfalls, alpine forests and meadows, as well as hardened lava flows, Mount Adams is both spectacularly scenic all while not being overly challenging.
No previous mountaineering experience is required to climb the peak, just a good level of physical fitness.
We will begin our trip by meeting up in Seattle and making the 5 hour drive to the trailhead at Bird Creek Meadows. From here, we will hike up to Sunrise Pass and make our camp.
Getting up early the next morning, we will practice a few necessary techniques to climb the mountain, including self-arrest, crevasse rescue and glacier travel techniques.
The following day is summit day and we will again get up early, about 2 am, and begin our ascent. Depending on weather conditions and the pace of the group, it will take between 6 and 8 hours to reach the top.
The views from the top are spectacular. There are unobstructed vistas out over Mount Saint Helens, Mount Rainier and Mount Hood, as well as the rest of the surrounding territory.
After a brief spell at the top, we will begin to climb back down the mountain, spending one last night at our camp, before packing up our gear and hiking back to the trailhead.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.
Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!
Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
