Steventy, yes you can summit Mt. Adams without glacier travel. If you stay on the correct route, there wouldnt even be any snowslopes with nasty runouts. Earlier in the summer, there are even established bum-sliding chutes.

The car has not burned yet...Yakima Herald 9/13:
"Further to the south, fire officials still said they had zero percent containment on the 1,937-acre Cascade Creek Fire, which is burning in timber on the southwestern slopes of Mount Adams. Efforts by 390 firefighters continued to be hampered by high winds, limited road access, steep terrain and dead trees, according to Dale Warriner, the team's spokesman.

Firefighters hope that on Friday they will be able to remove 17 personal vehicles left in trailhead parking areas when the fire jumped a road. Authorities had planned to remove them Wednesday, but safety concerns forced a delay, Warriner said."
