erics4569First Cali 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2012

erics4569

Drove up from SF, camped in a developed campground near Shasta City. Got some supplies next day, hiked in to Helen Lake, snow patches started a couple hundred feet below Helen Lake, but the campsites themselves were on rock. Spent the night (quite windy) and acclimated.

Departed next morning around 4am, hiked up Avalanche Gully, following established boot packs. Up to Red Banks was surprisingly easy/quick, but from there onwards up Misery Hill was a long, hard slog (mostly from loose scree, plus 13k altitude didn't help).

Made summit around 12pm. Had an awesome long glissade from Avalanche Gully down to Helen lake (2:30pm). Rested a bit, packed up camp and hoofed it back out to the trailhead (5:30pm). Drove back at SF (arrived around midnight).

First summit. Super easy to follow bootpath up to the Red Banks and straightforward but very windy climb to the summit, taking us about 5.5 hours from Helen Lake. Fun snowboard ride to camp. Hardest part was probably up and down the snow-less trail to/from 50/50 flat.

5 hours 50 minutes from Northgate TH to summit. Long descent due to a lack of snow. Route is still climbable, but not ideal for speed climbs right now.

Not much to say except this was a spectacular mountain. Definitely will be back to try some of the more challenging routes.

Climbed left of the Banks due to concern about rockfall. Solo'ed the entire trip, and it was terrific.

Started at the campground at 3 am. Found perfect conditions on our way up. Reached the summit at 10.30. For us our first volcano we climbed. Shasta has such an enormous prominence which makes it really special. Hearing the possibilities for backcountry skiing wants me to come back someday...

First time at Mt. Shasta and went solo. Camped at Helen Lake. Surprised there were only 2 others camped next to me. Left for summit at 2am and on top at 8am. Good cramponing snow all the way. Beautiful mountain.

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

theflyingmountaineer

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.

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.

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.
