Did Adam go to hell because he sinned?

The Bible does not specifically speak to this matter on Adam (or others after) however we can understand what was his fate by the Scripture.

1 Tim 2:13-14 Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression

We have Eve as the initiator to sin by deception, yet the actual blame of the passing on of the sin nature was put on Adam. Rom .5:14 “ Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses,

1 Cor. 15:22 “For as in Adam all die”

In Gen 3:17 we the account of what was said to Adam by God confronting him after he sinned. Then to Adam He said, "Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, 'You shall not eat of it':

Both Adam and Eve hid from God as he entered the garden, (as he did each day in the afternoon) on the day he sinned. Job refers to Adam in 31:33 “ If I have covered my transgressions as Adam, By hiding my iniquity in my bosom.”

God seeing their condition made a provision

Gn. 3:21 “Adam and his wife the LORD God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.”

Both were clothed with a sacrificed animals skins to cover their initial sin. After they had children they taught them to sacrifice for their sins as God taught them, Adam taught Cain and Abel what to do, so it was passed down.

The time came for the sacrifice and “ bel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the LORD respected Abel and his offering” (Gn. 4:4)

Cain was not respected for he did not bring a sacrifice of life, he brought what he decided, fruit.

God said to Cain Gn. 4:7 “If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. This is in reference to bringing the right type of sacrifice, one of blood. He had faith in his fruit which was unacceptable. Being accepted meant a cleansing of sin.

So back to the question was Adam condemned? If Adam went to hell because of his sin so did Abel and those afterwards. Why do I say this? Because Abel and others after all did the same sacrifice Adam did. So the answer is No, he did not go to hell. All who sacrifc9ie in faith in the Old Testament were accepted.
