Looking to hike Mt Shasta via clear creek. I've read both route info by mrchad9 and bubba suess. I have a couple of questions:
1. I do not plan to walk on areas with snow so would it be okay to not bring crampons and ice axe?
2. To lighten my load for the summit I was thinking of leaving tent and nonessentials at my campsite at clear meadows. Should I just carry my stuff?
3. Any other tips or suggestions?
I'll be climbing this solo but hopefully I'll meet others on the trail!
