Route: Mt Adams Infinity Loop (WA)

Location
Washington, US
Distance
49.5 mi
Vertical Gain
18,266 ft
Description

This route applies Chad Kellogg's Rainier Infinity Loop concept to Mount Adams via a combination of the trails and bushwacking rules from Around Mt Adams  with two opposing and largely non-technical routes on Mt Adams: its South Spur and North Cleaver.

The concept was first applied to Mt Adams by Jason "Ras" Vaughan.

Tribal Closures (update July 2022):

When circumnavigating Mt. Adams it is critical to do thorough research on the Yakama Nation Website to check for land closures and to obtain their permit and/or permission before attempting this route.  If the land is closed no one should be on it; we have Flagged prior efforts who were on the tribal land during a time of closure. The tribal land may be closed even when the rest of Mt Adams Wilderness is open.

Currently it appears that the Yakama Nation may be issuing permission for recreation on their land at certain times and certain cases, but that should be confirmed with the tribe. Do NOT attempt this route without receiving tribal permission and anyone submitting a time for it MUST include proof of permission to be valid.
