Clear Creek  Sucess!

Invited by a friend to climb Shasta and couldn't say no. Long approach from Clear Creek, but very scenic. Loved it!

First Timer  Sucess!

Made it to the summit up the Avalanche Gulch route from Helen Lake in a little under 4 hours. It was a beautiful day and my first Fourteener.

West Face Summit  Sucess!

This was my first time climbing a mountain and I had a wonderful time. I climbed Mount Shasta to honor the work of the Breast Cancer Fund.

Awesome Route, Awesome Weather.

Loving Casaval  Sucess!

Casaval Ridge is a must do. Camped at 11k and descended via AG. Thanks to a huge snow year we were able to climb this route much later than usual and enjoy great weather overall.

Solo on Sargents Ridge

I started out from Bunny Flat TH at 2:30am. Against better judgement I followed a party of three and we all ended up a little lost. So, instead of heading up the intended Avalanche Gulch, I was now going up Sargents Ridge. There was no speed record today. After 12 and a half hours of climbing I turned around at the plataeu before the summit. It was a long walk out, especially without making the summit. But I'm sure it will be there for another day. Conditions were fantastic on the way up and who doesn't love post-holing on the way down?

Avalanche Gulch  Sucess!

Shasta is such a beautiful big lady! Avy Gulch may not be a technical climb, but it proved more strenuous than I thought. Great winter-like conditions this June.

Via Bolam glacier  Sucess!

Climbed while attending USMC mountain warfare school. They paid me to go to this school? More recently climbed by way of casaval and green butte ridges.

Avy gulch  Sucess!

Had really awesome weather! Camped at Helen and weathered a scenic and playful hail squall with rainbows. Hit the Gulch at ~ 5 AM and reached the summit around 9. A chilly wind up there, but clear as a bell. Can't wait to come back.

Avalanche Gulch   Sucess!

Overnighted at Helen Lake. Moderate winds which died overnight. Summited next morning and retuned to car. Very hot & slushy below 10K. Great mountain, first non-Sierra climb.

tried 9 times, summited 5  Sucess!

Soloed the Hotlum-Bolam Ridge 4th of July weekend, 2008. Climbed to the top five times: twice view Hotlum-Bolam, once via Hotlum Glacier, once via Clear Creek Route, and once, at age 9, via Avy Gulch. A great mountain to introduce one's self to the world of mountaineering.

Fantastic! Avalanche Gulch  Sucess!

Covered in snow from the bottom, great for climbing in the morning, glissading down. Not a cloud in the sky the whole time!


CastillejaMiniata - Feb 18, 2011 9:47 pm Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2010

Minimal snow climbing.  Sucess!

There was snow about 1-2 thousand feet below the Red Banks, through the Red Banks, and then above them it was completely dry. Beautiful, frigid morning summit.
