March and November both stormed me off at 10 and 11 thousand, but hot dammit I loved every minute being on the mtn. Casaval in March and Seargents in November. Like the governor says, "I'll be back!"

Date Climbed: Apr 26, 2009


I tried to dayhike the route twice before, failing due to an oncoming cold and a freaky windslab. This time I was successful despite bruising my ribs the day before. Excellent route!

DustyDeb9Re: Casaval Ridge


Just wondering what the snow conditions were like. I've heard that the mountain did not get a lot of snow this past season. I'm planning a trip up the Avalanche gulche route in about 3 weeks. I've gone up the mountain once before but am still new to mountaineering.

Not nearly as hard as I expected, fun none the less. Had the summit to ourselves. The catwalk was definitely the highlight. Very interesting rock.

Skinned up to Casaval, fooled around on a few of the big gendarmes and enjoyed the blizzard conditions, probably stopped around 12,600-800. Skied down the west side of the ridge toward hidden valley, found a round about way back to the road and hitched back up to bunny flat. The section of trees between bunny flat parking and the start of the ridge can be a pain in the butt. Some wind slab action on the east side of the ridge.

nice backcountry experience until you get to the summit and the million other climbers on top.

farrisglClear Creek Route up this fabulous peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 7, 2001


This was my second attempt at Shasta; as with my previous attempt up the long Clear Route with about 8,000 feet of gain. On my first attempt, I was turned back at over 13,000 as the result of consistent high winds with the mountains ash a real pain as it blew around the edges of my mountaineering glasses and into my contact lenses. One month later I was provided a second opportunity on a late season October attempt.
I started the climb at about 2pm on a perfectly clear Saturday afternoon and pitched camp at about 9,400 feet. The next morning started up a bit late at 8 am. Climbing this route without snow was a drag with the very loose rock and sand on the steep slope. Fortunately no wind but this time I came prepared regardless with ski goggles.
The summit view was absolutely spectacular with few high clouds. The summit register revealed that I was only the second person to make it that day but being I didn’t see them, assumed that person came up via another route.
Definitely a peak that needs a second visitation!

My first attempt at anything beyond a ski lift. I had NO CLUE about how much conditioning I would need and thus made it as far as the heart before turning back! I came back the following year, in shape and fell in love with mountaineering. Much beter the second, more educated time around!

mstendervia Avalanche Gulch  Sucess!


We climbed Shasta via Avalanche Gulch back in July of 2001. There was very little snow that year: no snow at all up to Helen and "Helen Lake" was actually open so you did not have to melt snow. It was very cold and windy on top but all 4 of us made it. Great experience!

Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2006


Conditions were great until the last 700' to the summit when clouds obscured any views. It took us a while to search the upper slopes for the actual summit in the thick clouds.

Camped at Hidden Valley, Friday, 27JUN08. Started climbing 2am Saturday 28JUN08. On the summit at 10:30am. Spent an hour up there as the weather was phenomenal! Sunny and little wind. Back to Hidden Valley by 4 pm. Spent the night and back out to Bunny Flat on Sunday, 29JUN08. AWESOME! ! ! Avoid Avy Gulch, the West face is a good beginner/moderate route and MUCH less crowded.
