I took the South Climb route and it was great. There was very little snow along the way, except for the minimal glaciers, which are really more like snowfields. But without snow, at times the trail isn't exactly clear, especially below the Lunch Counter. I brought crampons and an ice axe, but really didn't need either this late in the season. I was glad to have trekking poles though. It does get very steep at times on scree that is probably snow-covered most of the year. Overall, this is just a tough 12-mile hike. I summited in 4:40, but I would guess most people would take closer to 6 or 7 hours. Including Adams, I could see 10 volcanoes from the summit on what was a beautiful, calm day. I highly recommend this "forgotten" volcano.
