BlackmouthAwesome Glissade  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 20, 2009


I summited with Forjan via Casaval ridge and we used Avy Gulch for our descent. The glissade down was awesome. The snow was a little mushy past Lake Helen.

skin up. stay at lake helen. maybe 20 for a low overnight. climb up. summit. light a match on the summit. blow it out. look around. laugh. ski down. perfect snow on the gulch. as The Flight of the Concords say, "Conditions were perfect". will have to do the chutes next time.

All worth it for the glissade. Whiteout on top with most people choosing to go back down from the Red Banks.

Route: Avalanche Gulch Variation Left of Heart

First mountaineering trip with a bunch of Boy Scouts and my brother. Left horse camp about 0300 and returned in 12 hrs. Ryan and friend summitted, then myself and brother. Others to follow. All but 3 summitted. Will have to come back when there is more snow.

Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2006


CMF annual climb...4/6 climbers stood on top.
Local wildfires made the view kind of crappy, but still worth every step.
Until next year...

Round trip in a big day from Bunny Flat. A very good intro mountaineering route. My friend puked at the Red Banks! Awesome glissade down nearly the whole route.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2005


Don't take Shasta too lightly. At first light on a busy Sunday morning, I saw the first summitter of the day tumble about 500 feet after taking a false step right below Red Banks. He had to be helicoptered out from Helen Lake.
