Short notice, but weather permitting, looking to head up Shasta's Avalanche Gulch Saturday 5/4 - Sunday 5/5, with a layover at Lake Helen. Looking forward to getting back on the mountain. If anyone with prior 14er experience (or similar) is interested in teaming up, let me know. My normal climbing partner is currently out-of-commission recovering from a knee surgery. I've chosen Avalanche Gulch as I'm familiar with the route, but open to other non-technical routes (e.g., west face) as well if accessible.
My prior experience includes Shasta, Hood, and Rainier (all successful climbs).
