theflyingmountaineerUnsuccessful attempt on Casaval Ridge
Date Climbed: Apr 20, 2014


After spending a day at 50/50 Flat and climbing to the First Window, our attempt the next day was unsuccessful. We started moving around 2:30a and my stomach turned us around by 3:30. This was a sour conclusion to my first season of winter mountaineering, but opened the doors for a better time next year.

Date Climbed: May 18, 2014


Temperatures in the teens not factoring the 35 - 40 mile an hour winds, Justin and I made it to the top at 8:45 a.m. after an alpine start from Helen Lake at 3:15 a.m. So cold we had to wear our down layer on top of all of our other layers during the ascent. I feel a need to come back to this one. Maybe try a single push with just the right climbing partner.

Drove from SLC and met up with my bud, Vimal. We skinned up and camped at Helen Lake in ridiculously warm weather. I suffered a little heat exhaustion, in fact. No problem, though. We tagged the summit the following morning and had a fun ski down. What a big mountain! Loved every minute on it.

pcClear Creek w/ variations  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 1, 2014


Drove to 6100' Apr 30, skinned up to bivvy at 9000' in Clear Creek Basin above regular camp area. May 1: climbed between Watkins Glacier and Wintun Ridge to rejoin Çlear Creek route at red Mushroom Rock 12,800' and on to summit from there. Stashed skis at mushroom rock, then, on descent, was able to ski from there almost all the way to the trailhead. Snow on upper Clear Creek route is melting fast in the recent spell of hot weather, and as of today (May 3) road reportedly drivable all the way to trailhead.

Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2013


Myself, my service dog Puppi and my cat Burma climbed the misery hill route and tagged the summit. It was a physically exhausting climb, basically because of the scree and deep sand and ash.

Cloud Ocean

Climbed from a high camp at Helen Lake. Decent snow conditions, no wind, and clear beautiful skies. An enjoyable and rewarding climb for my friend and I. Glissading made the descent faster and enjoyable!

We were the only people on the Bolam glacier which made for a quiet trip. The snow level was low, but overall this was a nice, easy route, and our first successful Shasta summit.

jbagleyCasaval Ridge failure
Date Climbed: Mar 12, 2013
This route was quite entertaining, especially early in the season, however the catwalk was full of rocks, so we avoided that section. On misery hill, a storm rolled in and visibility went to almost zero, so we turned around. I would attempt this route again.

Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2004


An ice ball to the chest ended the attempt of one of our team below the Red Banks. Brutal wind and cold sent back another at the start of misery hill. Near the crest of Misery Hill we were crawling on hands-stomach-knees to avoid getting blown off the mountain. Eventually made the summit with Moon, Andy, and Kevin.
