Approach from Marine\'s Camp
A sunset view of the final approach from Marine's Camp (elev. 10,700') to the Whitney Glacier route. A more or less level traverse of the lower Bolam Glacier (foreground) towards the upper of two talus heaps about 1/3 of the way up the Witney-Bolam ridge (middle distance) will put you in perfect position to gain the glacier and begin the climb. June 24, 2006.

Amazing shot. Do you realize how few Californians ( including myself, until a year ago) know that we have glaciers in Ca? One of the highlights of my life has been to do a one day climb to the toe of the Hotlum glacier and look into a crevasse. I hope to get high enough ( in Sept) to view and video the ice falls. Do you know how high the lower ice falls are?

I agree, the glaciers on Shasta are a sight to behold. I don't know exactly how high up the Hotlum ice falls are, as I have never been to them. I've only been on the Bolam/Witney side of that area.
