I climbed with a couple coworker friends. The conditions were drier than the ideal, but there was still snow where we needed it for the ascent and glissades down. We based out of Lake Helen and beat the crowds up. Great views, great weather, great day!

Dayhiked the AG on a beautiful day with a ton of people on the mountain. Started at Bunny Flats at 3am, summited at 8:30am, started down ~9:30 and got back to Bunny Flats at 1pm. This is my 11th of 15 CA 14ers

Perfect weather and the snow was not totally destroyed by glissade and bootpack yet. Weekend trip turned dayhike (thanks Tina!:) So glad we did it on Saturday 'cause that crowd headed up in the afternoon looked mighty frightening! Yes, I am slow - the altitude was knocking my pride over 13K' but I was happy to summit in just over 9 hours. Awesome glissade down and a million laughs with my pal. Love that mountain!

A fine ski descent, a good alternative to the zoo in AG.

AG: One day scamper, <8 hours up, <3 hours down with a very wild and long glissade. Had pizza and beer, then drove back to Portland afterward. Silly.
HB: 6/2/02, cruised up in leisurely time. Route straightforward, a bit more interesting and less crowded than AG.

This was my second try after being literally blown off last time ie crampons over helmet. This time went much smoother with just a fair breeze and rolling foggy clouds. 10 hrs car to car, good time all around.

After a unsuccessful attempt in August of 02 where my partner was nearly swallowed an avlanche in Avalance Gulch?? This time much better conditions, every step on snow, nice weather and a easy summit.

4:30 am start, 12:15 pm summit, 3:45 pm return to Bunny Flat. Wind packed snow above Red Banks made the descent tough on the ankles as there was no digging in. Continuous glissade from Red Banks to the rocks above Helen Lake - no groove yet but there will be. Breey most of the day, and on the cold side.

Made it to Helen lake saturday, but fierce winds all night and into the next day unfortunately sent us home. Amazing experience and first time alpine climb, will attempt again this summer.

Epic descent, total whiteout, skied from thumb rock at 13k in zero visibility. Made it down to find my car's brakes were out... it turned out to by quite an action packed trip.

Fun snow plow, so much snow it made the route pretty non technical.

Very pretty mountain. Fun weather on Saturday (40 MPH winds, maybe 20 degrees, blowing snow and fog, 50' visibility), had to camp lower than we had planned because it was too windy to make it to Helen Lake. Then Saturday dawned clear and perfect. Straightforward climb via Thumb Rock; although snow sounded more hollow than I would have liked. We got off the mountain before it got very warm. The glissade down the Heart was awesome.

Winter ascent in a day from Bunny Flat with Diggler. About 16 hrs. round trip - lack of acclimatization and 1 hour of sleep definitely slowed us down. Perfect weather and condition on the route.

Starting under full moon at 2am up Av Gulch I did not need a headlamp at all. Summit 9am. Note to self: Stick to early season on the volcanoes as descending (or ascending) on volcanic scree sucks.

I've been to Shasta twice, in July 2005 and June 2006. The first time was with Sierra Wilderness Seminars, and the second time was with some friends from Las Vegas. Weather was good both times, although in June 2006 it was very windy between Helen Lake and Red Banks. Here are some pictures:

Avalanche Gulch - slog up the snow. Lightning on the summit - very scary. Summitted and got the hell out of there. Slept in a snow cave that night and came down the following morning.

Success on the first try. The two following tries, Casaval Ridge in winter...not so much.

highicethank you mt shasta!  Sucess!
shasta was my playing ground for many years. she kept me preped for other climbs around the states and the world. Just want to thank her for not killing me in the process. I did many trainings and shorter ice climbs on her and Shastinas flanks, as well as 37 summit ascents out of 42 attempts... almost every route and then some not in the guides. There's alot to do and when you feel you're experienced enough, throw out the guide and let your mind seek out the lines...they're there! I was also able to solo anything not requiring too much glacier travel and most of these in winter. Her ridges are super in winter and it's great 'cause you're alone...no crowds. She gave me the confidence to take on anything in climbing and life in general. I live elsewhere now, but hope those of you who are climbing her now will take care of her and protect her. Get solid on your skills before going to the next level, take her SERIOUSLY and hopefully you'll be able to look back and say thank you to her as well.

What a great peak. Started climbing at around 3am and found perfect snow condition. The way down was a bit treacherous, but found a scree field to the west of the ridge and rode it to the snow field. Glissaded for about a quarter of a mile on the snow, and had a grand old time.
