Garon Coriz

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.

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.

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.

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!

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2013
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.

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.

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.

First introduction to mountain climbing. Reached the summit via the Clear Creek Route. No snow up there - watch out for falling boulders!! A party near us unhinged a very large one on the slopes below, thankfully no one was hurt.

Simply an astounding mountain. Not the best views in the world, but the view from the bottom is unmatched in all of California.

Climbed the West Gully route direct with my brother (reconronin949) towards Catwalk Crux in hopes of connecting with the Knife-Edge Ridge towards Whitney Glacier. While there was still enough snow on the Catwalk, we ended up down climbing below the Knife-Edge Ridge as the conditions did not permit a safe traverse. We made the top of the West Face and had an uneventful slog up a dry Misery Hill to the summit. Weather was perfect. Glissaded most of the West Face on our return. Lots of nice folks were met along the way including Roxanne who is the caretaker at Horse Camp. No space aliens were sighted. Thanks for climbing with me Recon.

There was one last remaining ribbon of snow all the way up the West Face route, but I suspect it's gone now. Terrible snow year so you better hurry up. BTW does anyone have any idea if the cascade gulch route still exists. Everyone on the mountain warned against it due to the Whitney Glacier cross over, hence the West Face Route, which was kinda lame. Strait, steep, boring. Misery hill is completely bare right now.
