NateECasaval Ridge
Date Climbed: May 20, 2013

NateE

I attempted the Casaval Ridge in May, but ended up traversing the slopes below the ridge before joining up with the West Face gully. There was not much snow left on the ridge. As always, the mountain was beautiful. I descended Avy Gulch and traversed to my camp without really having to regain any elevation. I will be back again!

Camped at Marine's Camp, walked over to the Lower Whitney Glacier, roped up and climbed until we got to Whitney/Shastina Saddle. Climbed the west face of the upper ridge of the Cascade Gulch. From there to the top via Misery Hill. Very easy hike and slide back down the Hotlum/Bolam Ridge to our basecamp.
Climbed with several members of the Utah Climbing Club.

Date Climbed: Jun 8, 2013
4th time is a charm. First successful summit after three previous aborted ski ascents over the past 15 years. Hot day, overnight temps did not go below freezing or solidify the snowpack much. This however made it feasible and easy to skin up the entire Hotlum Wintun ridge route (veering onto the upper Wintun) almost the entire way to the summit. Bootpacked only the final 200 vertical feet. Light breeze and warm temps on the summit. Ski descent was nice.

First time I got to be roped in! Went left of heart coming up the West Face. Thanks to Shasta Mountain Guides for teaching me some great principles of mountaineering!

This was a great peak to introduce me to mountain climbing. I had a ton of fun learning the tricks of the trade and getting to the top! We lucked out and had beautiful weather.

Snowshoed in from BF with a group of skiers, a little after dawn. With crampons, up and through the Red Banks, and there my circumstances forced a tough call to turn it around. I'm writing here to celebrate the spirit of the folks I met all day long. People travel to this mountain from all over the country, at this time of year mainly to ski. The parking lot, full of folks sleeping in their cars or in tents pitched nearby, takes on the air of a block party. Cheers to all the folks who love this mountain as I do.

Date Climbed: Apr 23, 2013

low snow year, misery ridge completely exposed. casaval is a fun route, very interesting despite not being hard... people call it 4th class (and this could vary with season) but I found it to be almost all snow with two sections up to 45-50deg.

Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2010
Flipped out at people trying to glissade red banks with crampons after getting popped in the head with a rock by someone who decided to stay off of snow. Wear your brain bucket! Despite that, beautiful hill, will definitely return many times for different routes.

Single day push in prep for Mt Whitney. First time on snow and ice in a year so it took a while to get my pace down once crampons went on. Beautiful day and the glissade down was glorious.

Climbed Shasta via Casaval. Beautiful route but couldn't summit. Too much fresh powder. Nice and uncrowned, we were the only climbers on it.

We camped at Hidden Valley and climbed via West face gully.. It was very nice and we got a good break in the weather considering how bad a snowstorm we dealt with just days before on Rainier.We also traversed over to Shastina which was a worthwhile climb as well...,Jim W

This was my first experience with mountaineering. Had a great time, picked up some valuable skills, and thoroughly enjoyed the summit.

BrbiggsNot as easy as the first time!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2012

Second attempt at the mountain, the first was the slog up Clear Creek. This time I wanted to begin my glacier travel history with the common Avalanche Gulch route which I found to be substantially more taxing then the CC route. Started 11PM from Bunny Flats, I summited at 9am and glissaded my arse back to humanity quick like. 7k+ ft. in one go?.. not again most likely. =)

Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2011

I decided to climb Mt. Shasta after listening to the memorable tales of some older fellows whom I respected. SP instantly became my go to site for trip planning. I had minimal climbing gear so I chose the Clear Creek route which I began not at the trail head, but at the turnoff of highway 89 at the base of the mountain. I started whacking the bush and passed the trail head around 6pm continuing until I reached the head of the icy springs, setting up camp just before nightfall with the the nearly full moon rising and a thunderstorm to the south. Began the anticipated scree-spree up the talus-palace just before sunrise. I took around 3 hours to reach the snow covered summit where I bathed shirtless in the sun for nearly 2 hours before saying my goodbyes and scree-skiing my way down. It was at that point I knew I would climb much much higher in the years to come.

FairweatherDay hike up Clear Creek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2012

Fairweather

Strenuous day with my son up the endless rubble of Clear Creek. The only time we touched snow was on the summit plateau. First time up Shasta. Best part was coming down. Would have reached the trailhead in under 3 hours if not for bloody toes. Would have been better off coming up one of the glacier routes. Now I know why I love the Sierra.
