Shasta: Casaval Ridge (In Season?)

Hey all,

Does anyone have any idea as to how the past few years have been treating the snow conditions of the Casaval route of Shasta in the early winter--specifically around the mid-to-late December time frame?

Many thanks!

Good news, all. Thanks to the hard efforts of local Joe L and crew Bishop's new brewery, the Mountain Rambler, officially opens this Friday. The Rambler has been kind enough to host a number of climbing-related and music events the past few months, so come show your support.

Doors open at 4:30 Friday. Live music from 7-9 from local band Rear View Mirror.
Hours daily 4:30pm to 10:30pm, kitchen closes at 9. Closed Mondays.

California ... christmas week ?

we've got two weeks off around xmas week, looking for somewhere to play ...

Mountaineers Route on Whitney has been on our wish list for a while ... would like to climb it while there's decent snowpack ... late december doesn't sound like an ideal time for snowpack ?

any other recommendations in the area ? or within reasonable driving distance ?

High Sierra Mystery Photo.... Fall Edition


Again from Lewis Clark's basement is this small contact print that is labeled "Clyde roping on Mt Hutchinson". Lewis labeled it as from "FJB 1933 High Trip", probably Franklin Banker, the only match I can find in the year's Club Bulletin. Seems to be Norman below but damned if I know where "Mt Hutchinson" is in California. Someone out there knows where this is. Gordon?

Eastern Sierra Conditions - October 2014

Hey all,
I haven't been following what's going on with the Sierra weather… How are things looking above 12k feet? Checked the weather for the weekend, and it looks perfect. Might try for a day hike of Lone Pine Peak via Meysan Lakes Trail, if I can squeeze it in.

Thanks in advance,
