Product Description

This book, written by Steve Lewis, gives you a little bit of insight on the History of Mount Shasta as well as step by step suggestions to prepare you for climbing this northern California massif.

In the back portion of the book he also lists the other routes that are used on Mount Shasta, although he does not go into detail on those.
He also lists many helpful things such as phone numbers and addresses for current conditions and gear rentals.

Some helpful information
I have read this a couple of times, although I have not personally been to the top of Mt. Shasta yet. He seems to detail out the Avalanche Gulch route pretty nicely as well as giving you a good idea of what to expect. I must add thought that the Mt. Shasta page on summitpost also does a great job of describing routes and the photos are a indispensible source of information.
