I more vacation time than my wife, so I need to use some up this summer.  I'm looking for midweek partner(s) for a climb up Adams and Glacier Peak to finish off the cascade volcanoes.  No dates set yet, ideally Adams earlier in the summer as a conditioning climb once the road melts and open dates for Glacier Peak.

I'm 33 and experienced with climbs on glaciated peaks such as Rainier, Baker, Shuksan, Hood, Denali, as well as others in the N. Cascades.

Shoot me a PM if interested.

Unless you're just looking for company, you don't really need a partner for either of those mountains. Glacier Peak has a 3rd class route which avoids any glacier travel, and the south spur on Adams is just a hike if done late season.

It'd be just for the company.  You're right and neither is technical by their standard route,  maybe short stretch of glacier travel on Glacier peak is all.

That short stretch of glacier travel on Glacier Peak isn't that short, if you're referring to the Gerdine and Cool Glaciers bypass for Disappointment Peak.  Someone from another group punched into a crevasse on the Gerdine when I climbed it several years ago.

If you're referring to the White Chuck "Glacier", then yes.

Short is relative I guess.  The map that I was looking at on caltop didn't look too much longer than the direct route and entails a little over 1000' of elevation gain.

JustSomeHiker,

Curious where the 3rd class route, non glacier, on Glacier Peak is. Thanks.

From Glacier Gap going due north up the ridge and over Disappointment Peak and continuing north to the summit. This avoids the glacier bypass of DP, but means you have to deal w/the lousy scree and sand of going up DP.

The glacier route leaves the ridge at ~8400' onto the Gerdine Glacier to bypass Disappointment; aim to the left of the three pinnacles to the NE to reach the east "ridge" then NW on the Cool Glacier to the ridge just N of DP, then on to the summit.

Note that either route crosses the White Chuck Glacier to get to Glacier Gap, but we didn't rope up for that; it seems to be mostly interconnected snowfields though I've heard there's a few cracks later in season.

Unless there's still snow. I dont remember sand but I do remember some very unstable talus heading up the ridge. I grabbed a few large boulders that I did not expect to move...and they did.

Thanks for the route description. Yep, talus can be super creepy.
