Climbed in 2 days with my good buddy, Vimal. Got to ski the whole thing, which was harder than expected after summiting. Get an early start to avoid the heat reflected on route up Avalanche Gulch.

Great route, we left at 4AM, summited just before 1, a bit slow due to AMS, but glorious. Lots of sand and small talus in the gullies above UFO rock- taking care paid off. Knees took a beating on descent w/out trekking poles- I highly recommend taking them in lieu of ice ax/ crampons, which we took at the behest of the FS, and were utterly unnecessary this late in season.

Casaval was a great route- had the exposure we were looking for without the necessity of roping up.

ROSENCLIMBERFinally  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2014


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.

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2014


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


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).
