glaciersituated on the northwest flank of Mount Adams, a 12,276 ft (3,742 m) stratovolcanoin the U.S. stateof Washington. It is the largest glacier on Mount Adams, flowing down from the summit icecapat over 12,000 ft (3,700 m) for over 2.5 mi (4 km) to a terminus near 7,000 ft (2,100 m).
Between 11,800 ft (3,600 m) and 9,200 ft (2,800 m), the glacier flows through a steep
