Mount Adams, West Ridge. The first recorded ascent of this route was completed July 14 by Dr. Ralph Uber, Wallace Juneau, Gary Foulkes, and Lex Maxwell. The principal problem was route finding to by-pass some minor gendarmes and to avoid the frequent runnels of falling rock. Descent was via the White Salmon Glacier in conditions of zero visibility.
