But I already have plans this weekend... but maybe we can do a trip or two sometime/anytime over the next year eh?

Agree.Vitaliy M. wrote:...Major snow avalanche at this time of the year would be pretty interesting event. Maybe your friend saw a moderately large chunk of ice break off and to a novice Shasta hiker that would be an avalanche.
I've seen it as well as the whole trip video and liked them both. I don't think such an avalanche could accrue on Shasta right now; unless, the whole snow would be hilted up so much to become deeply watered and slide down. However, there are currently on Shasta some snow/ice blocks (usually upper part of bergshrunds overhanging) that may still collapse, as you pointed out above.Vitaliy M. wrote:Here is an ice avalanche I recorded from Liberty Ridge on Rainier this year. It is due to major chunks of ice breaking off from the glacier cap above Willis wall.

This year so far I’ve been 9 times; the last six summated; different routs but not all I wanted. I may still go again in this season. However, I do not compete with anyone in mountaineering.
