North America, United States, Washington, Cascade Mountains, Mount Adams, Rusk Ice Cliff

Mount Adams, Rusk Ice Cliff. In February Chet Sutterlin and I made a new route on the east of Mount Adams. From the upper right of the Rusk Glacier we quickly climbed a 40° snow-and-ice gully until we could traverse left over verglased rock for a pitch to the base of the ice cliff proper. Five pitches of steep ice climbing brought us to a 30-foot overhang, which we climbed directly to the top of the ice cliff. We took 21 hours round-trip from Mazama Saddle. NCCS IV.
