RileywynaRoute Climbed: Hotlum-Bolum ridge Date Climbed: Sept 1999  Sucess!

Rileywyna

Soloed the Hotlum-Bolum ridge in 9 hours car to car. One of my great days in the Mountains. Took a whipper messing around without crampons traversing above the Berg. Had to self arrest to save my life after a 60 foot slide.

Indiana Mad-ManRoute Climbed: Wintun Ridge Date Climbed: August 12, 2005

Indiana Mad-Man

A three day trip around the Clear Creek and Wintun Ridge routes with an attempt up Wintun. We encountred lots of scree and plenty of rockfall but this is a great alternative to the overcrowded avalanche gulch route. We ended up running into a 65% glacier wall at 12,000 feet and considering previous rockfall from this point we turned around.

Camped at Helen Lake on both climbs. Took my skis all the way to the summit in 2004. Skiing was only good below the Red Banks though, too icy above.

I took my wife on her first mountaineering experience on Shasta. We were on the mountain for two nights and had pretty good weather. It was a little windy on summit day. This was a great climb and I am hoping to get back there agian this year.

96avs01

Pulled sleds on the Memorial Highway past the Old Ski Bowl to to a connecting ridge to the west of Sargents proper. Camp 1 was ~800' below Shastarama Point. Initial summit attempt on day 2 was aborted due to companion's altitude sickness. Dug a snow/ice cave above the Mud Creek Glacier and spent a comfortable night before a 2nd attempt. Successful summit on Day 3 after navigating some dicey sections to reach Thumb Rock.

PietriRoute Climbed: Hotlum-Bolam Ridge Date Climbed: April 15, 2005  Sucess!
During a 12-day trip to Mt. Shasta, we caught a break in the weather and, on the suggestion of climbing ranger Eric White, took off for the north side. Supposedly noone had been up there in months. We abandoned the cars at 5660' where they got stuck in the snow on the dirt road, and we hiked into the Northgate trailhead on snowshoes. Two nights on the mountain. It was a spectacular climb. Weather was incredible. The isolation was perfect. Not a trace of a soul on the north side. Pure and undisturbed the entire way. Beautiful. We summited at 1305 hours under magnificent weather!

mperkins14Route Climbed: Avalanch Gulch Date Climbed: Sat, August 13, 2005  Sucess!
We set up base at Horse Camp - which is clean, lots of shade - offered a good oppt to acclimate and do a few surrounding hikes. The second night we departed at 1:30am from Horse Camp and reached the summit at 11:30am, exactly 10hrs later. Were surprised it took us so long, going at a pretty swift pace. In any case, stopping momentarily once an hour, fueling up w/ bits of food and water, taking in the view -- is really the perfect agenda. We couldn't have asked for better weather the entire 3 days, no clouds and little wind. Last year we summited Whitney - and concluded this climb to be more difficult, considering the technical gear involved. I logged into this site prior to both our climbs - and have always found it to be super helpful. Shasta is truly a beautiful mountain and worth every effort. Next, which peak to summit Summer 2006! (Maurice Perkins, Matt Andrejczak, Joel Kennedy, Jay Miranda, Forrest Shaw).

The San Gorgonio chapter and the San Diego chapter of CMFs had a blast; met some new friends who now comprise two new chapters, San Jose and Mt. Shasta. Looking forward to getting back and meeting some Lemurians...

It was a great climb. My first steep glacier climb. Very strenuous, but a great experience.

Good climb! Narrowly avoided a boulder dislodged by a careless climber on the way up... and had my permit checked by a ranger on the summit. Sheesh.

Started late from Horse Camp (8:30 AM) but conditions were excellent (clear skies, crisp nieve throughout, intense wind mid-way up ridge to summit) so I made great time. Easy solo by staying left of gendarmes. Summitted by 1 PM, down (Avalanche Gulch) by 4.

Reached summit with Ritesh (Tau) in great weather. Had the summit to ourselves, met only 2 other climbers on the summit plateau. Winds were moderate. we climbed the biggest chute to the right of the Red Banks and also descended through it. Snow was quite firm in the morning and didn't see too much rockfall. We had tried climbing Casaval Ridge in April but conditions were much more difficult then. Overall a great climb and Shasta is a great mountain.

Great weather, solo hike starting from bunny flat at 3:20, summited at 9:30, back to the car around 1pm. For a Rhode Islander, this mountain was a treat.
