Mount Adams, situated in the eastern Cascade Range, east of Mount Saint Helens and north of Mount Hood, is the second most massive and the third tallest volcano in the Cascade Range. Its eruptive volume is about 48 cubic miles and only Mount Shasta is larger in volume in the Cascades. About 60% of the mountain is in the Mount Adams Wilderness while the remainder (the East Side) was returned to the Yakima Indian Reservation. While often called a neglected mountain, this is debatable. During an early summer weekend, the Mount Adams Ranger Station recently issued Cascade Volcano Passes for over 350 people. Most of these people stay close to the South Spur described below. Be careful of rock falls, especially on the headwall routes - there's a reason why most Mount Adams headwall routes remain unrepeated.
