Shastina in October
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
My absolute favorite view of Shastina that I have ever had, looking down from immediately above The Sharktooth on Mount Shasta (something like 13,700 feet or so).
There was just a bit of snow dusting... yet the late season made all the crevasses visible on the Whitney Glacier. We were just completing a climb of Bolam Glacier (I fell in a crevasse below the bergschrund), and luckily the cold fall weather held out just enough for us to make the summit. The day before it would have been impossible... we spent a lot of time at camp wondering about the next day. Based on the register we were the only ones to summit within a week before or after our trip.
