bivied at 10,850 saturday night, climbed to the summit in just under five hours. No running water; had to melt old snow. Had the north side, maybe the entire mountain, all to ourselves this weekend

aesthetic route -- looking forward to climbing this again in summer

Two day summit. I had a blast. 13,500 seems to be when the alti always hits me. Luckily not as much falling rock as the weeks before.

First attempt on Shasta proved to be an awesome and fun experience. I decided to solo Ave Gulch and the only hitch in the experience was the ice fall from climbers and natural formations above. I really enjoyed finally getting atop this mountain that has escaped me for the last five years.

Limited by time and diverted by bad weather on Rainier, we changed plans last minute and headed down to Shasta where the sun was guaranteed to shine. The weather did not disappoint and after catching a couple hours of sleep at the trail head, we headed out at about 0800 in the morning. At a reasonable pace, we summited at just before 1600 and were back at the car by 1945. I promise I will never try it in a single day again.

DCcoug109 in Redding!  Sucess!


Got a hall pass to escape the 95 degree heat and humidity in DC and was welcomed by 109 degrees in Redding. Climbed via Avalanche Gulch and stayed at Horse Camp. Wished we stayed at the lake because the 6,000' + on summit day (from Horse Camp) is pushing it - Misery Hill earned its name - was more gassed on Shasta than most of the bigger peaks I've climbed in the Andes. Nice to be able to glissade down, and had a nice cup of coffee when I got back down to town. Beautiful mountain - will likely do this one again.

Brought my gear with me on a business trip and was lucky enough to squeeze in an attempt on Shasta. I packed light up to Helen lake noting that I was the only one there without a tent. After being woken up several times by mountain weasels walking across my legs trying to break into my pack, I was up at 3:30 and off by 4:00. The conditions were great. The red banks were the steepest portion, but very manageable. I summitted around 8:30am.

Probably one of the best trips I have ever been on. So many good stories.

Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2010


Two day trip started somewhat early on Saturday morning, camped at Helen Lake. After waiting for clouds to clear, started at 0500 Sunday. Summited about 1030. Returned to camp and had to rest the eyes because a lack of proper mountineering glasses. Total inversion layer all the way up, I couldn't take a bad picture. 2nd ascent! but I couldn't see more than 20 feet the first time.

Finally got around to climbing Shasta after living in NoCal for 14 years. Spent a night at Helen Lake acclimitizing so summit day wasn't bad at all. Climbed through leftmost couloir in the Red Banks.

Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2010


I got dropped off at Northgate trailhead by my wife and started out by myself at 1130 PM the night of Saturday, July 24,2010. Nearly full moon, no headlamp needed [ had one, didn't use it ]. I proceeded to, then up the Hotlum-Bolam Ridge. At the top of the talus, I headed right, and ascended snow and a little ice when I could, talus and rock when I could not. I summitted at 1245 PM on July 25. I then descended the deep groove in the snow toward Helen Lake, stopped for a while to dry my socks, and then descended to the Bunny Flat trailhead, where I was met by my wife at 645 PM on Sunday, July 25, 2010.
3 liters of Gatorade, 2 1/2 Clif Bars, and about 18 hours after leaving Northgate.

blueshadeMt. Shasta - Hotlum-Wintun Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2010


Climbed Shasta at the end of a three week hiking extravaganza. Despite being less than 100% after so much time on the trails and mountains, climbed the Hotlum-Wintun ridge in about 9 hours car to car. Started late but actually made coming down easier without having to worry about slipping on ice. Make sure you know where to find the trail coming back down.

From Horse Camp 7+ hours to summit. Hot temps but totally clear weather. Fun climb up and snow conditions great for sliding down (only safe way to get down the chimney). Chimney was steep, narrow, and icy in the morning shade and Misery Hill was miserable scree but beautiful mountain in general!

SFMountaineer3rd Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2010


Third summit, this time on the Hotlum Wintun Ridge, at 9:10am. Left camp at 8900 feet at 2:45am. I highly recommend this route, a lot of fun. On a hot day, you need to get up there early, as the snow remained fairly unconsolidated and deep up high this late in the season and postholing was a serious issue for me. Almost didn't make it.

Able to summit despite aggravating altitude sickness that got worse from 12000 onwards. Snow the whole way from Bunny Flat. Ideal conditions!
