Shasta Summit Pinnacle

My partner Max begins the descent from Shasta’s summit following our trip up Bolam Glacier in October 2012.

Nice contrast!

Those clouds and rhyme ice look good together!

Re: Nice contrast!

Thanks Vitaliy. Yeah the clouds really worked out on this one. You missed out! Whiteout conditions the first day but for the summit we had good conditions, and the only party to summit that weekend!

Re: Nice contrast!

Yeah I did miss out! Have not done Shasta in the fall yet. Maybe next October there will be another good window...

Re: Nice contrast!

I hope so. A great time of year for the less crevassed glaciers like Bolam... maybe could be good for some ice climbing on Wintun. A couple of the ridges can even be doable... but mostly the mountain just looks so different as the season changes.

Re: Nice contrast!

Yeah, I would love to check out the scenery during fall. I bet it could be stunning with a light dusting of snow!
