Voted 4/5

I have read this a couple of times, although I have not personally been to the top of Mt. Shasta yet. He seems to detail out the Avalanche Gulch route pretty nicely as well as giving you a good idea of what to expect. I must add thought that the Mt. Shasta page on summitpost also does a great job of describing routes and the photos are a indispensible source of information.
