Two day trip (not with the SMG ;) ) up the Hotlum Glacier. Fantastic climb, great weather, glad to get the peak on my second attempt.

ROSENCLIMBERFinally  Sucess!

This was my third trip on the Clear Creek route. Finally it all came together, but still with enough of a challenge with route finding and the weather to make it sporting. I did get off route near the summit, but back-tracked and persevered and found the correct way up. I think a GPS device would be very useful and hopefully by next season I'll have one.

I used one of the intermediate bivouac sites and enjoyed not having to fumble around in the dark on summit day. If you're interested in doing the Clear Creek route with someone who's been there let me know. I'm also interested in Shastina.
For more information you can visit my profile and the trip report that I posted.

If you heard someone on the peak singing The Hustle that was me. Loved the glissade back own Avvy Gulch.

My first 14er and my first solo above 10,000. Went up the Clear Creek route and slept overnight to acclimate at the popular basecamp area just below 9000. Could have climbed the rest of the route without touching snow but took a few snowfields on the way up to break up the scree-climbing. Hit the fields on the way back down for a 2000 foot glissade and an 800 foot one. All in all, one of the best climbing experiences I've ever had. Coming back next summer, maybe to try the West Face Gully.

trexkerryDayhike from Clear Creek TH  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2014
With my brother - 7.5 hours up and 4 hours down from Clear Creek TH. The route up wasn't as bad as feared, scrambled up rocks whenever possible over the last 1,500 feet as the trail would have been a nightmare. Coming down was easy, although loose in sections where caution is warranted. Only acclimated for 4 hours at 9,000 feet the day before, and was really slow above 13,000 but somehow all our energy came back once we got to the top. Grueling day for sure. Trip report is HERE.

Long day on the Clear Creek route but persevered to reach the top of my first 14er. No snow left but the loose rock and slippery conditions along the steepest sections made for an exhausting hike.

WalkoutnowClear Creek slog  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2014

Walkoutnow

Was nice to get back to Shasta after unsuccessful winter attempt on Casaval ridge in March. That being said, will not do it again without snow. Long slog of sand and gravel, but it was a beautiful day on a majestic mountain, so all was good! There IS water available at @ 9000ft from the spring on this route, and the only equipment you will want to bring is a helmet for the chute near the saddle, and the last gulch up to the summit. Everything on the route is loose. There was no snow.

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

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.
