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.

Camped at 10,000', up at 4 AM, summitted, glissaded from 13,500' to 9500', climbed back up to camp, packed up and descended.

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!

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.

Rookie  Sucess!

First ever peak ascent. Two day summit. Beautiful mountain...but could not escape my raging headache. Great experience.

Casaval Ridge & West Face  Sucess!

Camped on Casaval Ridge and climbed to the summit the next day. We descended the West Face and traversed back to camp. Super trip!

Avy gulch  Sucess!

Wanted to do this for most of my life. Finally got around to it last June. Stayed at horse camp and summited the next day. I ended up buying an annual pass because I didn't think I would summit the first time. Not wanting to waste it I came back the first week the old ski bowl opened up and climbed in 1 day. I'll definitely climb this one again by different routes.

Red Banks weeee  Sucess!

I went up the Avalanche Gulch route. People scared me about the Red Banks but there was nothing to worry about at all there. I think the most challenging part was the long haul before the Banks. It looked like my group was the only group to make it on the morning we went. Lots of people turned back before the Banks (as we saw on our way down). OK glissade on the way down but a little too steep for me on or below the RBs- I walked down a bit first. :)

Casaval Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the Casaval Ridge. Originally planned on bringing skis for the descent, but didn't. I regretted the decision as the West Face looked to be a great ski run.
